Ken Krebs

Ken Krebs is an analytical chemist in the US EPA Office of Research and Development, National Risk Management Laboratory, Air Pollution Prevention and Control Division, (APPCD), Indoor Environment Management Branch (IEMB). Ken has a B.S. degree in chemistry and a certificate in computer programming from North Carolina State University.

Research Area
Ken Krebs is an analytical chemist responsible for the collection and analysis of trace compounds in air. This has involved samples from our in-house facilities as well as from the field. Ken also has extensive experience in operating the small chamber facility.

Mr. Krebs has 20-year experience in indoor air quality (IAQ) and exposure research and is specialized in source testing, sample collection, analytical chemistry, modeling, and IAQ simulation. He has been involved in testing various indoor pollution sources; among the sources were paints, carpets, furniture, office equipment, and emissions perfuorotelomer alcohols from popcorn bags.
