Appendix A Biographical Sketches of Principal Contributors Edwin F. Barth Ill is an environmental engineer with the Hazardous Site Control Division of Superfund. He is involved with the development of Superfund approaches to ground water contamination and alternative technology implementation. He has an M.S. degree in environmental engineering from the University of Notre Dame. Halina S. Brown is an associate professor of environment, tech- nology, and society at Clark University, Worcester, Massachusetts. She received a Ph.D. in 1975 from New York University. Her prin- cipal areas of interest are regulatory toxicology, environmental public health policy, and the management of environmental pol- Jution. Trained as a chemist, for several years she pursued basic research on molecular mechanisms of cancer induction by poly- cyclic aromatic hydrocarbons. Prior to her affiliation with Clark University, she worked for the Massachusetts government as chief toxicologist and public health policymaker for the state environ- mental agency. Dr. Brown has served on numerous advisory com- mittees, both on the state level and for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. James M. Davidson received his Ph.D. in soil physics from the University of California at Davis. Currently, he is assistant dean 195

His area of expertise has encompassed the development of mathematical simulation models for describing the movement of nitrogen and organic pesticides in unsaturated soil-water systems. He is experienced in environmen- tal sciences and hydraulics technology. Dr. Davidson is a member of the Water Science and Technology Board. Richard M. Dowd, president and principal scientist of R. M. Dowd & Company, consultants in science and environmental pol- icy, Washington, D.C., served from 1977 to 1981 as principal science advisor to the administrator of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
