Prof. Dr. Bernd Nowack holds a MSc. (1992) and a PhD (1995) in environmental sciences from ETH Zürich. He is leading the "Environmental Risk Assessment and Management" group at Empa, the Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Science and Technology, and is adjunct professor at ETH Zurich. His current research deals with the chances and risks of engineered nanomaterials, comprising a wide spectrum of different approaches: development and application of methods for material flow modeling, exposure modeling, environmental risk assessment and life cycle assessment; experimental studies about release of nanomaterials from products and investigations about their behavior and effects in the environment. With the combinations of these investigations he aims to gain a comprehensive understanding of the chances and risks of nanomaterials for the environment. Bernd Nowack has published more than 100 peer-reviewed publications which receive >900 citations/year. He acted as co-advisor of 14 PhD projects and is Associate Editor of the journal Environmental Pollution.
