Don earned undergraduate and M.S. degrees in Physics at the University

He worked for over 15 years at an independent, not-for-profit FFRDC,
seeking the best possible policy outcomes informed by research,
quantitative analysis, and scientific evidence. His experience
includes R&D strategies, research design, statistical modeling, and
risk analyses. Don and his wife, Debbie, returned to the Pacific
coast in 2018, making Portland, Oregon their new home. He is now

citizen-science projects, and to meet people with similar interests.
