Biography

Ms. Amanda Burns is a Supervising Health Scientist and Regional Unit Manager with more than nine years of consulting experience. Her principal areas of training and expertise include toxicology, occupational and environmental risk assessment, exposure assessment and dose reconstruction. In addition to her consulting experience, Amanda has seven years of experience in molecular toxicology/biology. Her graduate work focused on a class of compounds known as peroxisome proliferators that are known to induce liver tumors in rodents. This research pulled from many disciplines including molecular biology, toxicology and risk assessment. Since joining Cardno ChemRisk (formerly ChemRisk, LLC) in 2007, her project experience includes reconstructing dose and exposure, and assessing risk to communities and workers from chemicals such as benzene, asbestos, and metals. She is proficient in a number of statistical tools. In addition, Ms. Burns has provided extensive litigation support including evaluating plaintiffs’ occupational histories and preparing for depositions and trials.
