Research Areas: Information Systems and Process Analytics
Biography: A project manager in the Biofuels and Renewable Energy Technologies Department, Shelton-Davis provides oversight and management of various research activities. Since coming to the Idaho National Laboratory in 1985, she has provided project management support for a program to develop low-enriched uranium fuel as a substitute for high enriched uranium fuel in research reactors. She has worked on the design, construction and operation of a testing system for preprocessing biomass material prior to conversion for energy production as part of the U.S. alternative energy initiative. She has managed a project to design, develop, construct and demonstrate a closure system for a waste package to dispose spent nuclear fuel in a geological repository. Additionally, she has worked on multiple research projects associated with hybrid energy systems, corrosion studies and material choice for new spent fuel canisters and processing equipment, and corrosion studies and analyses for high level radioactive liquid waste storage systems. Colleen assisted in the preparation in proposals for FORGE in the GTO office of DOE and REMADE in the AMO office of DOE. She also performs project management for the low enriched uranium fuel conversion program of NNSA on the HPRR (high performance research reactor) and TREAT. She holds a master’s degree in chemical engineering from the University of Idaho.
