High Temperature Test Laboratory Team Members




Rick D. Evans D. EvansRick Evans is a Process Control System's program manager. His responsibilities include testing, design, analysis, and research activities for the INL's Critical Infrastructure Protection/Resilience (CIPR) missions, interfacing with management personnel, key organizations and stakeholders for the development of strategic and long range plans and proposals. Rick has an MBA from Keller Graduate School of Management and an B.S. in Electronics Engineering from DeVry University. Control System Security
Tim Klett KlettTim Klett is a Cyber Security Analyst within the Homeland Security Division at the Idaho National Laboratory (INL). He has over 15 years of experience in working with information technology solutions for both the Department of Energy (DOE) and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). His current work includes overseeing the design, development, and security of several mission-critical systems utilized by DHS. Tim's current research areas include intrusion detection systems for industrial control systems as well as critical infrastructure dependencies and interdependencies. Tim is currently pursuing a PhD in Computer Science from the University of Idaho, earned his M.S. degree in Computer Science from the Illinois Institute of Technology in 2004, and is a Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP). Control System Security Security Analyst
Michael Haney HaneyDr. Michael Haney is an assistant professor of Computer Science for the University of Idaho and a cybersecurity researcher for the Idaho National Laboratory with the Resilient Control and Instrumentation Systems. He received his master's and doctorate in computer science from the University of Tulsa in 2013 and 2015, respectively. He received a bachelor's in mathematics from the University of Kentucky in 1998. Currently, his research interests are in security data visualization to improve intrusion detection and response for large-scale networks. He also works on honeypot research, creating deceptive systems that mimic real power generation systems, oil refineries or water treatment plants, and recording and studying the cyber-attacks against these systems.Control System Security Researcher
Michael Miller MillerMichael Miller has a B.S. in Biology, a B.S. in Electrical Engineering from the University of New Mexico and a M.S. in Measurement and Controls Engineering from the Idaho State University. Currently, he assists with Metso control system installation in the Advanced Test Reactor pressurized loop system. Control System Security
Craig Rieger, Ph.D., PE Rieger, Ph.D., PECraig Rieger, PhD, PE, is the Chief Control Systems Research Engineer at the Idaho National Laboratory (INL), pioneering multidisciplinary research in the area of next generation resilient control systems. In addition, he has organized and chaired nine Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) technically co-sponsored symposia and one National Science Foundation workshop in this new research area, and authored more than 40 peer-reviewed publications. Craig received B.S. and M.S. degrees in Chemical Engineering from Montana State University in 1983 and 1985, respectively, and a PhD in Engineering and Applied Science from Idaho State University in 2008. Craig’s PhD coursework and dissertation focused on measurements and control, with specific application to intelligent, supervisory ventilation controls for critical infrastructure. Craig is a senior member of IEEE, and has 20 years of software and hardware design experience for process control system upgrades and new installations. Craig has also been a supervisor and technical lead for control systems engineering groups having design, configuration management, and security responsibilities for several INL nuclear facilities and various control system architectures.
