Metro NY AIHA Local Section -- Welcomes Dr. Brian Pavilonis, an Associate Professor and Certified Industrial Hygienist who has been working in occupational health and exposure science since 2012. His lecture will cover metals and metalloids, which are ubiquitous and persistent in urban areas and are generally released into the environment as mixtures. New York City has widespread metals contamination from a combination of active and legacy sources. Over the past five years, we have been conducting research to identify exposure areas of concern, sources, and possible health effects because of exposure. This presentation will touch upon all aspects of our past and current research on this topic.

BIO: Dr. Pavilonis joined the CUNY SPH faculty in 2014. Prior to CUNY SPH, Dr. Pavilonis was a Post-doctoral fellow at Rutgers University in the Exposure Science Division after earning his PhD at the University of Iowa in Industrial Hygiene in 2012. At CUNY SPH, Dr. Pavilonis has developed and taught courses in Industrial Hygiene, Noise and Radiation, Industrial Ventilation, Environmental Measurements, and Environmental Health.

In 2016, he was named Industrial Hygiene Program Director for the NY/NJ NIOSH ERC. His research aims to understand human exposure in the occupational environment and characterize risk due to exposure, both areas in which he has published extensively on.
