Biography

Dr. Dotson is a Managing Health Scientist with Cardno ChemRisk. His principal areas of training and expertise include toxicology, industrial hygiene, risk assessment, and occupational health. He has experience characterizing exposures and risk associated with workplace exposures to a wide range of chemicals such as asbestos, organic and inorganic compounds, pesticides, and metals. Prior to joining Cardno ChemRisk, Dr. Dotson was employed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) as a health scientist for over 10 years. His research efforts and responsibilities focused on critically evaluating occupational hazards and developing appropriate guidelines used to establish NIOSH policies, scientific-decision making strategies, and recommendations.  As part of these efforts, he conducted assessments aimed at characterizing the hazard and risk associated with dermal contact to chemicals, developed workplace recommendations to protect workers from acute inhalation exposures, and investigated the integration of novel risk assessment methods into occupational health. Dr. Dotson also led NIOSH projects focused on investigating the health risks of workplace exposures to 1-bromopropane and peracetic acid. His doctoral research focused on quantifying workplace exposures and health risks associated with the servicing of asbestos-containing automotive parts and materials. Dr. Dotson is an officer of the American Industrial Hygiene Association Risk Committee and the Society for Risk Analysis Occupational Health and Safety Specialty Section.
