Chris McGurk, PhD
Regulatory Affairs ConsultantI joined the Enviresearch team in January 2019. Previous to this, I obtained a Masters degree and a PhD in chemistry from Newcastle University, where I specialised in the fabrication and characterisation of nanomaterials with applications ranging from uses in nanoscale electronics to polymer film surfaces for pathogen capture.
Here at Enviresearch, I am part of the regulatory affairs team, providing regulatory advice as well as technical and administrative support regarding Plant Protection Products, Biocidal product registration and REACH services. I have an interest in the physical and chemical properties of pesticide products and their active substances and routinely perform comparative assessments and human health risk assessments including Operator, Worker, Bystander and Resident exposure assessments, as well as consumer exposure assessments.
Outside of work hours I enjoy travelling, eating, all things football and generally staying active.
