Research and Remote Applications Engineer
Biography: Clint Baker is a mechanical design engineer in the Experiment Design Department at Idaho National Laboratory. In this role, he is responsible for the design, fabrication, and installation of fueled and non-fueled experiment equipment for steady state and transient irradiation experiments. In the five years prior to this role, he designed hot cell equipment as a remote systems design engineer in the Separations Department at INL. Here, he was responsible for the design, fabrication, and installation of engineering-scale nuclear fuel reprocessing equipment. He is a specialist in the advanced design principles required to create reliable equipment for challenging applications such as high temperature operation, exposure to ionizing radiation, and other severe operating conditions. Prior to his work at INL, he conducted research in the field of machinery diagnostics, prognostics, and health management for five years. He has presented his work reflecting both fields of expertise at national and international conferences. He holds B.S. and M.S. degrees in mechanical engineering from The Pennsylvania State University.
