Andrew D. Maynard
Grantee Research Project Results
Dr. Maynard is internationally recognized as a research leader and lecturer in the fields of aerosol characterization and the implications of nanotechnology to occupational health. He trained as a physicist at Birmingham University in the UK, and after completing a Ph.D. in ultrafine aerosol analysis at the Cavendish Laboratory, Cambridge University (UK) joined the Aerosols research group of the UK Health and Safety Executive. In 2000 he moved to the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) in the USA to develop research addressing ultrafine aerosol exposure in the workplace. Dr. Maynard's expertise covers many facets of aerosols and health implications, from occupational aerosol sampler design to state of the art nanoparticle analysis, as reflected in over 35 peer-reviewed publications and numerous invited presentations. He represents NIOSH on the Nanomaterial Science, Engineering and Technology subcommittee of the National Science and Technology Council (NSET), and co-chairs the Nanotechnology Health and Environment Implications (NEHI) working group of NSET. In addition, Dr Maynard chairs the International Standards Organization Working Group on size selective sampling in the workplace. Dr. Maynard holds an Associate Professorship at the University of Cincinnati, and is an Honorary Senior Lecturer at the University of Aberdeen, UK.
