Prior to this Chris spent the last seven years working as a regulatory ecotoxicologist for the Chemicals Regulation Division (CRD) within the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), acting as the UK competent authority for the regulation of both pesticide and biocide chemicals. In this role he gained extensive experience of conducting ecotoxicological risk assessments according to modern EU regulations including a wide range of established and more novel higher tier refinement methods. He also attended EU scientific authority meetings in support of these assessments and conclusions, and to contribute to reaching decisions on both pesticide and biocide active substances. In this role Chris also developed and delivered risk assessment training workshops for stakeholders, provided regulator contributions to developing guidance and has recently led UK regulator experience in Endocrine Disruption assessments. Before working for CRD Chris spent 5 years working for a large CRO, conducting both aquatic and terrestrial ecotoxicology studies in a GLP environment.
Away from work Chris is a keen cyclist and can often be found on weekends trying to ride up Yorkshire’s picturesque but incredibly steep country roads. He is also something of a football enthusiast, being a proud supporter of his team – Sunderland AFC.
