Environmental Toxicology Expert in Ammonium Perchlorate Contamination
An expert in environmental toxicology was sought for an economic damages case where an aerospace company was seeking contractual relief for environmental damages caused by its research. Plaintiff sought reimbursement and recovery of millions in incurred costs, expenses, and damages and over $100 million more in estimated costs for future environmental remediation, and for the defense of toxic tort personal injury lawsuits. Claims arose from groundwater contamination of trichloroethylene and ammonium perchlorate that was required in the performance of aerospace research.
IMS ExpertServices was requested to locate an environmental toxicology expert with specific experience in ammonium perchlorate and its toxicological effects. The expert was sought to report on the presence of ammonium perchlorate in the groundwater and the associated human and ecological risks.
This environmental toxicology expert has over 20 years of experience in assessing human and ecological risks associated with chemicals. He has been actively involved with perchlorate issues and has written about perchlorate in an article detailing the problem of perchlorate in drinking water. He holds a B.S. in natural resources, a Master's of Public Health in environmental health, and a Ph.D. in toxicology and pharmacology. He has prior expert witness experience including deposition and trial testimony. IMS Reference #5014070
This environmental toxicology expert has extensive experience in the toxicological effects of perchlorate. He is an ecotoxicologist whose research interests center on ecological and physiological characteristics of organisms, populations, and environments that contribute to contaminant exposure and adverse effects. He has chaired sessions on groundwater contamination by perchlorate for the SETAC (Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry) and has written and made numerous presentations on the topic. He earned his B.S. in biology and chemistry and his Ph.D. in environmental toxicology. IMS Reference #5014084
