Ronald Mosley

Ronald Mosley is a environmental scientist 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). Ron earned his B.S. in Physics from Berea College, and an MS and Ph.D. in Physics from Auburn University.

Research Area
Ronald Mosley is a member of the Particulate Matter Team and serves as the Principal Investigator for EPA's studies of the relationship between indoor and outdoor concentrations of fine particles. He is in charge of studies performed in the in-house fine particle research chambers. Over the years, he has published more than 60 papers and holds two U.S. Patents. He has been with ORD for 25 years and has 10 years prior experience in research in solid state physics and air pollution control technology. Over the years, he has published more than 70 papers and holds two U.S. Patents.  He is currently a member a team studying the entry of soil gas contaminants into the indoor environment.  He is also involved in a study of the penetration of “dirty bomb” fragments into the indoor environment.
