--> University. Dr. Crouch holds a B.A. in Natural Sciences (Theoretical Physics) and a Ph.D. in High Energy Physics, both from Cambridge University, United Kingdom. Dr. Crouch has published widely in the areas of environmental quality, risk assessment, and presentation and analysis of uncertainties. He has co-authored a major text in risk assessment, Risk/Benefit Analysis. Dr. Crouch has served as an advisor to various local and national agencies concerned with public health and the environment. He has written computer programs for the sophisticated analysis of results from carcinogenesis bioassays; has developed algorithms (on the levels of both theory and computer implementation) for the objective quantification of waste site contamination; and has designed Monte Carlo simulations for purposes of fully characterizing uncertainties and variabilities inherent in health risk assessment. Dr. Crouch currently serves as a member of the NRC Committee on the Health Effects of Waste Incineration. JOHN P. GIESY, Michigan State University, East Lansing, Michigan John P. Giesy is Distinguished Professor of Zoology in the College of Natural Science at Michigan State University. He also holds appointments in the Institute for Environmental Toxicology and National Food Safety and Toxicology Center. He received his Ph.D. in limnology from Michigan State University in 1974. His research interests include cycling of heavy metals, uptake and availability of heavy metals in aquatic systems, aquatic toxicology, and pesticides. He is the author of over 230 books, book chapters, and journal publications. Currently, he serves on the National Research Council's Committee on Hormonally Active Agents in the Environment and the National Academy of Medicine's panel on the ecological effects of dioxins in Vietnam.
