Biography

Joanne Duncan joined PNNL as a research scientist in 1991. As a project manager and active collaborator on a number of multidisciplinary research projects and assignments, responsibilities have centered on the development, field activities, data processing, and technical reporting for Sensor Fish projects, involving the evaluation and characterization of fish passage environments to include turbines, spillways, weirs, sluiceways, regulating outlets, and other fish passage routes at hydroelectric projects throughout the Pacific Northwest. As the PNNL EARRTH SharePoint team site manager, she supports the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, as well as the other onsite and offsite organizations. As an administrator for multiple SharePoint sites, she contributes to site development and interacts with internal and external SharePoint users, as well as acting as coordinator and database specialist for document references. Joanne is also the production coordinator and a co-author for the annual PNNL site environmental report
