Ms. Jennifer Bare is an environmental engineer with 9 years of scientific consulting experience. She specializes in quantitative exposure modeling and reconstruction, human health risk assessment, chemical transport analysis, and data management. She has assessed risks associated with consumer, community, and occupational exposures to a variety of products and chemicals. She focuses on designing and implementing chemical exposure models for volatile and semi-volatile organic compounds, particulates, and metals. Specifically, she has modeled and re-created exposures from inhalation (near-field, far-field, and vapor intrusion), dermal, hand-to-mouth, and ingestion pathways. Additionally, she has experience in deriving chemical toxicity criteria through dose-response modeling, determining exposure and background levels using statistical analyses, and understanding uncertainty and sensitivity using probabilistic modeling (e.g., Monte Carlo).
Ms. Bare has specific expertise in reconstructing and predicting community exposures to industrial emissions using USEPA air dispersion models. She routinely assists clients with products and chemicals that are regulated under California’s Proposition 65 and USEPA’s Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA). She also regularly assists with estimating exposures associated with complex contaminated sites and emitters, such as manufactured gas plants (MGPs) and chemical plants.
