Jacob G. Reynolds has a B.S. in Chemistry from Evergreen State College and an M.S. in Soil Chemistry from the University of Idaho. He has 14 years’ experience in modeling mass and energy balance in chemical systems, including: soils, glass melters, off-gas treatment equipment, solid-liquid phase equilibrium, slurry handling processes, and ion exchange. Much of this work involved developing practical models that could be embedded in efficient software tools, while maintaining statistical significance and underlying physical understanding. He has written more than 30 papers for reviewed journals or conference proceedings. Jacob is currently a process engineering manager for Washington River Protection Solutions, LLC, at the Hanford nuclear reservation.
