Biography

Craig Lukins started at PNNL in 2008 as a Technician in the Hydrocarbon Processing group. After nine years at PNNL, having been promoted to a Mechanical Engineer, he accepted a position at Mission Support Alliance supporting the Hanford Fire Department (HFD) as the Program Manager for the respiratory protection program as well as the Controlling Organization Authority for all Lock and Tag maintenance operations within HFD.

Returning to the PNNL in 2019 as a Systems Engineering Technologist within the Environmental Assessment & Engineering Group, Craig specializes in process design with specific expertise in process visualization including 2D and 3D representations; and brings a wealth of hands-on experience with engineered systems development including fabrication, I/C, and operational troubleshooting. With interests covering a broad range of technical domains, Craig supports projects across the entire laboratory including bio-fuels production, radiation detection and nuclear materials monitoring, reactor disablement technologies, melter design and operations, and nuclear detonation analysis.
