Mr. Shaw originally came to ORNL in 1991 from the U.S. Navy to join the HFIR Operations Group as a Nuclear Reactor Controller. Joining the RRD Materials & Procurement Group in 1995 as a Procurement Engineer, he became responsible for the division’s commercial grade dedication program.  In 2006, Mr. Shaw moved into the Systems Engineering Group as a Systems Engineer, responsible for software engineering efforts associated with the HFIR's digital control systems, and assumed the position of Nuclear Instrumentation & Controls Engineering Lead in 2019.   In 2022, he was selected to lead the Business Management Services section, responsible for Reactor Certification & Qualification, Nuclear Materials & Procurement, Document Control, Internet Technology, and Finance.

Mr. Shaw holds a BS in Nuclear Engineering Technology from American Technical Institute.
