Deborah Bennett Fate, transport, and exposure to chemicals in a multimedia environment within the context of environmental exposure and risk assessment. My work currently focuses on organic compounds in the indoor environment, including partitioning to the various surfaces in the home. Research techniques include both modeling approaches and measurement studies. Volatile organic compounds, pesticides, and flame retardants are emphasized.

Irva Hertz-Picciotto Dr. Hertz-Picciotto is an environmental epidemiologist with over 200 scientific publications addressing effects of environmental exposures on pregnancy and child development. She directs the CHARGE Study, the first large, comprehensive population-based investigation of environmental factors in autism, and MARBLES (Markers of Autism Risk in Babies - Learning Early Signs), to search for early biologic markers that will predict autism. She is Director of the Northern California Center for the National Children's Study. Dr. Hertz-Picciotto has served as Advisor to numerous federal and state agencies, including the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, National Toxicology Program, and the California Air Resources Board.
