dynamic models. His work with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has involved applying these transmission models to assess the public-health risks from exposure to microbial agents in drinking waters, recreational waters, and biosolids. Dr. Eisenberg received his Ph.D. from the University of California at Berkeley and San Francisco.

Mark T. Hernandez is professor in the Department of Civil, Environmental, and Architectural Engineering at the University of Colorado at Boulder and is an active consultant to the indoor air quality sector. He is also faculty director and principal investigator at the Colorado Diversity Initiative. A generation of his research lies on the cusp between biological air pollution, waste-water treatment systems, and molecular biology. Recent work focused on tracking and characterizing bioaerosols generated by large-scale disasters, including major metropolitan floods, the quarantined City of New Orleans following Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, and coastal Louisiana affected by the Horizon oil spill. Dr. Hernandez serves as editor of the journal Aerosol Science and Technology. Dr. Hernandez received his B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. in environmental engineering from the University of California at Berkeley and is a registered professional civil engineer. Dr. Hernandez was a member of the NRC Committee to Review the Health and Safety Risks of High-Biocontainment Laboratories at Fort Detrick and currently serves on the Committee on the Evaluation of a Site-Specific Risk Assessment for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Planned National Bio- and Agro-Defense Facility in Manhattan, Kansas.

Leonard M. Siegel is director of the Center for Public Environmental Oversight (CPEO), a project of the Pacific Studies Center that facilitates public participation in the oversight of military environmental programs, federal facilities cleanup, and brownfield site revitalization. He is one of the environmental movement’s leading experts on military facility contamination, community oversight of cleanup, and the vapor intrusion pathway. For his organization, he runs two Internet newsgroups: the Military Environmental Forum and the Brownfields Internet Forum. Mr. Siegel also serves on numerous advisory committees, including California’s Brownfields Revitalization Advisory Group, the Interstate Technology and Regulatory Council’s Permeable Reactive Barrier Work Team, the Department of Toxic Substances Control (California) External Advisory Group, and the Moffett Field (former Moffett Naval Air Station) Restoration Advisory Board. He has also served on several committees of the NRC, including the Committee to Review the Health and Safety Risks of High-Biocontainment Laboratories at Fort Detrick.
