I study the regulation and management of chemicals and how various factors interact in the risk assessment and policy-making process. I am interested in all aspects of chemicals risk management, ranging from regulatory decisions and expert group judgement to the role of the individual’s behavior in order to reduce risks. The major focus of my work is on the management of risks associated to chemicals in the workplace, for instance the setting of occupational exposure limits.
Among current projects are:
-Exposure limits for data-poor substances.
-Special interests and setting of occupational exposure limits.
-Skin uptake of chemical substances.
