Dr. Reiss is an Assistant Professor in the Mel and Enid Zuckerman College of Public Health at the University of Arizona. His primary research interest is developing tools and techniques for time-resolved exposure assessment in order to advance public health disciplines (e.g., industrial hygiene, epidemiology, risk assessment, compliance). In his current research, he utilizes Laser Ablation ICP-MS to obtain estimates of past exposures in hair (e.g. welders’). He is developing a standard operating procedure for a rapid, ultra-low-cost, NIOSH-acceptable method to screen atmospheres for hazardous concentrations of fibers. Previously, he developed, modified, and built calibration and measurement equipment for NOx, SO2, methane, and formaldehyde. Dr. Reiss has worked for more than 10 years in research, academia, and industry. His projects ranged from one-person residential indoor air quality assessments in Canada to managing a large-scale (≥100 employees) retrospective exposure assessment study in China.
