Treye Thomas

Leader, Chemical Hazards Program

U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission

Dr. Thomas is a toxicologist and leader of the Chemical Hazards Program team in the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission’s (CPSC) Office of Hazard Identification and Reduction. His duties include establishing priorities and projects to identify and mitigate potential health risks to consumers resulting from chemical exposures during product use. Dr. Thomas has conducted comprehensive exposure assessment studies of chemicals in consumer products and quantified the potential health risks to consumers exposed to these chemicals. Specific activities have included conducting exposure and/or health hazard assessments of flame retardant (FR) chemicals, combustion by-products, indoor air pollutants, and compounds used to pressure-treat wood. Dr. Thomas is the leader of the CPSC nanotechnology team, and is responsible for developing agency activities and policy for nanotechnology. Dr. Thomas has served as a CPSC representative on a number of nanotechnology committees including the ILSI/HESI Nanomaterial Environmental, Health, and Safety Subcommittee, the Federal NSET and NEHI sub-committees, and the International Council on Nanotechnology (ICON).

Dr. Thomas received a Bachelor’s degree in Chemistry from the University of California, Riverside, an MS in Environmental Health Sciences from UCLA, and a PhD in Environmental Sciences at the University of Texas, Health Science Center, Houston. He completed a post-doctoral fellowship in Industrial Toxicology at the Warner-Lambert Corporation (now Pfizer Pharmaceutical).
