D.Env. Student on Internship
Environmental Science and Engineering
Scott’s internship is with the Safer Consumer Products program within California EPA, Department of Toxic Substances Control. He was hired to evaluate lead-acid batteries and alternatives, as required by California law and the Governor. As part of this relatively new regulatory effort, he is helping set the benchmark for chemical-product evaluations that will follow. His extensive experience in human-health risk assessment is being applied to meet the needs of the wide scope of alternatives analysis, including complex decision-making. He looks forward to working with Professors Suffet and Malloy as he completes the internship and dissertation over the next year.
