Randall M. Takemoto-Hambleton, Manager Exposure Assessment Studies -
Randall received his B.S.E, M.S., and Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from Duke University. Between undergraduate and graduate studies, he worked in a small start up company and developed a cart-based, electro-optical, spectrographic system which was used to make in-vivo electrolyte measurements in human sweat. While in graduate school, Randall worked as a consulting engineer on a project undertaken by I.B.M. to determine the electric and magnetic fields induced in persons sitting in front of the I.B.M. CGA Color Monitor. Further, he performed research developing and modeling RF and microwave antennas for the Dept. of Radiation Oncology at Duke Medical Center.

Randall joined EPRI in 1992. His current responsibilities include managing exposure assessment and field management projects, and performing statistical analyses of occupational and residential exposure databases.
