Ms. Amanda Burns is a Managing Health Scientist and Regional Unit Manager with ten years of consulting and project management experience. Her principal areas of training and expertise include toxicology, occupational and environmental exposure assessment, dose reconstruction, and human health risk assessment. In addition to her consulting experience, Amanda has seven years of experience in molecular toxicology/biology. Her graduate work and master’s thesis focused on a class of compounds known as peroxisome proliferators that are known to induce liver tumors in rodents. Her consulting and project experience includes conducting quantitative exposure and dose assessments as well as assessing risk to communities and workers from chemicals such as benzene, asbestos, pesticides, and metals. In addition, she has significant experience conducting on-site baseline exposure assessments at oil and gas facilities. Ms. Burns has authored and/or co-authored over 25 published articles and abstracts on the topics of asbestos, benzene, nanoparticles and peroxisome proliferators.
