New DCAS Associate Director of Science, Timothy Taulbee, PhD, CHP

April 29, 2019

DCAS is pleased to announce our new Associate Director of Science, Dr. Timothy Taulbee. Dr. Taulbee has over 25 years’ experience in radiation measurements, dosimetry, and radiation dose reconstruction for both radiation compensation programs and epidemiologic studies. He has a Doctorate in Nuclear Engineering from the University of Cincinnati and is a Certified Health Physicist (CHP) by the American Board of Health Physics.

He is a peer reviewer for both the Health Physics and Radiation Protection Dosimetry journals. Dr. Taulbee is an active member of the Health Physics Society (HPS), the American Academy of Health Physics (AAHP), and the Cincinnati Radiation Society. He served on and chaired multiple committees in these professional organizations and was elected as a Director to the Health Physics Society.

He began his professional work career in 1991 as a nuclear engineer in the radiation and measurements group at the Department of Energy’s Mound Plant in Miamisburg, Ohio. Dr. Taulbee joined NIOSH’s Health-related Energy Research Branch (HERB) in 1997 as a Health Physicist. He conducted radiation exposure assessments in support of radiation epidemiologic studies.

In 2001, Dr. Taulbee joined DCAS to support the Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act of 2000 (EEOICPA). He began his tenure at DCAS as a Health Physicist and was promoted to Research Health Scientist in 2010. Dr. Taulbee conducted extensive research needed to conduct dose reconstructions. Based on this research, he developed many dose reconstruction methods and guidelines that are an integral part of EEOICPA. In addition to conducting dose reconstructions, he also served as the Lead Health Physicist in charge of evaluating Special Exposure Cohort (SEC) petitions for many work sites.

In his new role, Dr. Taulbee will continue to be an asset to the DCAS team, ensuring our research and methods remain current with scientific progress.

Please join us in congratulating Dr. Taulbee on his new position with DCAS.
