Mark Patrick Taylor
Professor of Environmental Science at Macquarie University. His research program investigates environmental pollution and risks to human health from aerosols, dusts, sediments, soil and water.
Professor of Earth Sciences at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI). He is a Biogeochemist with several decades of experience in determining contaminant transport and human exposure. Associate Editor for Applied Geochemistry and the Editor-in-Chief for GeoHealth.
Professor of Applied Geochemistry and Health at Northumbria University. Her research investigates environment and health interactions and she is particularly interested in the bioavailability of potentially harmful elements in the environment.
Principal researcher at Health Canada, and Adjunct Professor in the University of Ottawa, Canada. She is the lead researcher of the Canadian House Dust Study - a national baseline study designed to address risk assessment data requirements.
Professor of Geochemistry at the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, Greece. Her research interests span a range of topics in urban geochemistry and potentially harmful element hazard characterization.
Amelia Paula Marinho Reis
Professor of Environmental Geology in the Universidade do Minho, Portugal. Her research interests include human health risk assessment studies, human biomonitoring, and the impact of dust on human health.
Professor of Environmental Geochemistry at the University of the West of Scotland, Paisley, Scotland, UK. His research interest covers the transport/behaviour of pollutants in the environment, evaluating their impact on ecosystems and human health.
Professor of Air Quality Management at Northumbria University, Newcastle, UK. His research interests cover the breadth of air quality (both indoor and out), its management and links to human health.
Professor of Environmental Microbiology at Northumbria University, Newcastle, UK. His current research focuses on the use of microbiology and novel molecular techniques applied across a range of environmental contexts.
Environmental Chemist at Manchester Metropolitan University, Manchester, UK. Her current research focuses on the characterisation of particles in dust and their health risk assessment.
Senior scientist at the British Geological Survey, Keyworth, Nottingham, UK. Her research focuses on understanding how and why contaminants are taken up into the body.
Senior researcher at the Urban Observatory, Newcastle University, where she is involved with indoor air quality monitoring. Her research interests also include understanding indoor exposure to new generation pollutants.
Senior researcher in Applied Epidemiology at Newcastle University, UK. Her research focuses on assessing risk factors for and causal pathways to adverse health and behavioral outcomes.
Post-doctoral researcher on the Home Biome project at Northumbria University, Newcastle, UK. He is a molecular biologist by background and is currently investigating the anti-microbial resistant components of indoor residential dusts.
PhD researcher at Northumbria University, Newcastle, UK. Deej is part of the DustSafe project, studying the metal and microbial constituents of indoor residential dusts.
Royal Society of Chemistry sponsored International Visiting Scholar
Kin Fai Ho
Associate Professor of Public Health at The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK). He is an environmental scientist, focusing on exposure assessment of air pollutants in Hong Kong, Mainland China and Southeast Asia. His research interests center on developing exposure assessment techniques and modifying chemical/toxicological characterization methods to quantify the personal exposure and health impacts of air pollutants.
