ACADEMIC COUNCILORS

Donghai Liang (1)

Donghai Liang, Ph.D.

Dr. Donghai Liang is a research track Assistant Professor in the Department of Environmental Health at Emory University. He earned his B.S. in biology at Peking University, his M.P.H. in environmental health sciences at Yale University, and his Ph.D. in environmental health sciences at Emory University. His current research focuses on measuring multi-dimensional exposures and elucidating the molecular mechanisms accounting for the complex health responses to environmental mixtures (i.e., traffic-related air pollution and persistent organic pollutants). More recently, he has shifted the majority of his effort toward incorporating high resolution metabolomics into the investigations on the molecular mechanisms and disease etiology associated with environmental exposures. He is a faculty member and co-investigator of the Emory HERCULES Exposome Research Center and the Emory’s Children’s Health Exposure Analysis Resource (CHEAR) Laboratory Hub. He has been active in service to the ISES Society since 2015 and he has served as the co-chair of the Diversity Committee since 2017. He has led and organized the ISES annual meeting travel awards since 2016, which have supported and helped hundreds of students, new researchers, and scientists in the field of environmental exposure, including those from over 30 developing countries and under-represented groups, to attend the ISES annual conferences.

Juan P. Ramos-Bonilla, PhD 

Paul Scheepers, M.Sc, Ph.D.

Dr. Paul T.J. Scheepers is Associate Professor at the Radboud Institute for Health Sciences, Radboud university medical center, Nijmegen, The Netherlands. He earned his M.Sc. in Environmental Sciences (with honors) from Wageningen University and a Ph.D. in Toxicology at the Radboud University, Nijmegen. He is leading the research group Risk Assessment and Molecular Epidemiology and is head of the Research Lab Molecular Epidemiology. His primary research focus has been on human biological monitoring and its applications in human health risk assessment. New applications for biomonitoring were developed in the areas of occupational and environmental health, consumer safety and biomonitoring following chemical incidents. He is involved as an independent expert of committees on pesticides, emerging risks, chemical incidents and he supports rapid risk assessments for the Directorate-General for Health and Food Safety (DG SANTE) of the European Commission and collaborates with WHO and ILO, mainly on exposure and risk assessments.
