Recently he has also been involved in various other facets of the 'knowledge management' area as it relates to the decommissioning field - working with the partner of Oak Ridge Associated Universities in establishing a Decommissioning Certificate Program for those working in or wishing to work in the Nuclear D&D field. He has more recently been engaged in performing peer paper reviews for various technical journals prior to acceptance of papers for publication. In addition he’s served as a seminar speaker at various Japanese and Korean universities and institutes and other public events to convey to these audiences his experiences and key knowledge management aspects and points from earlier decommissioning projects.
