Ms. Hynds is a Supervising Health Scientist with 20 years of professional experience in human health and environmental consulting. A large portion of her career has been spent conducting human health risk and exposure assessments for contaminated sites, indoor workplaces, drinking water, and consumer and industrial products. Several projects have involved a community risk communication aspect, for which she has been involved in public meetings and the development of written materials. She has also served as a third party peer reviewer for risk assessments on several occasions. Ms. Hynds is experienced with characterizing risk for novel situations as well as under the jurisdiction of numerous state and federal Agencies, and evaluating exposures via a variety of media (e.g., soil, sediment, fish, groundwater, surface water, air). Her work has encompassed a variety of chemicals, including benzene and other VOCs, atrazine and other pesticides, PFOA, PAHs, dioxins, PCBs, asbestos, and metals. She is also experienced in performing industrial hygiene and indoor air quality investigations as well as evaluating risks posed by chemicals in surface dust. Ms. Hynds has also designed and conducted original research to determine receptor-specific dermal adherence factors, and to determine site-specific bioaccessibility factors for chemicals in soil.
