Agency, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, and the American Chemical Society. Dr. Bayer was a semifinalist in Discovery Magazine awards for Innovative Technology of Importance in 1999 and holds numerous patents for materials and devices for monitoring and improving air quality. Her current research includes a project to develop a personal monitoring vest able to monitor a variety of pollutants that are suspected as being asthmatic aggravators while linking these with pulmonary function tests sponsored by the Department of Housing and Urban Development. She holds a B.S. in chemistry form Baylor University and an M.S. and a Ph.D. in organic chemistry from Emory University.
John S. Bradley is a principal research officer at the National Research Council of Canada’s Institute for Research in Construction. Dr. Bradley is involved in the design of efficient procedures for making advanced acoustical measurements in rooms for speech and music, and the use of these quantities to evaluate such spaces more scientifically; measuring techniques for predicting and evaluating speech intelligibility in rooms, including school classrooms; noise control related to buildings, including for outdoor noises; and relationships between physical and subjective assessments of annoyance caused by noise from various sources. He is a fellow in the Acoustical Society of America, past president of the Canadian Acoustical Association, and a member of the Acoustical Society of America Technical Committee on Architectural Acoustics and the editorial board of the Audio Engineering Society. He has served on ANSI and ISO standards committees as well as the WHO working group for community noise guidelines. He holds a B.S. in physics and a master’s in physics/acoustics from the University of Western Ontario, and a Ph.D. in physics/acoustics from Imperial College, University of London.
Glen I. Earthman is professor emeritus of educational administration at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University. His research interests extend to all phases of school facilities, with a concentration on exploring the relationship between school building condition and student achievement. Dr. Earthman has 40 years of experience in the field of education, serving as a teacher, principal, and executive director for school facility planning in the Philadelphia public schools, where he directed a staff of 250 professional planners and architects engaged in all activities associated with planning school facilities and monitoring the construction and evaluation of the resultant buildings. He is a member and past officer of the International Society for Educational Planning and the Council of Educational Facility Planners, International (CEFPI). He received the CEFPI President’s Award for planning activities in 1992 and the Planner of the Year Award in 1994. He holds a B.A. and a master’s degree from the University of Denver and a Ph.D. from the University of Northern Colorado, where he served as a graduate fellow in the School Planning Laboratory.
Peyton A. Eggleston is the director of the Center for Children’s Environmental Health at Johns Hopkins University, a center of excellence sponsored by the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences and one of EPA’s National Centers for Environmental Research. He is also a professor of pediatrics at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. His research focus is environmental allergens—their role in respiratory diseases (in particular, asthma), risk factors for sensitization, means of avoidance, and methods and effectiveness of indoor environmental control. He is credited with more than 190 publications and serves on the editorial board of the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology. He has served as a member of the Board of Allergy and Immunology and is an active member of the Academy
