Anders Baunis professor in risk assessment of nanomaterials at the Department of Environmental Engineering, Technical University of Denmark. He has a M.Sc. in Environmental Engineering (DTU, 1994) and holds a Ph.D. in application of biotests for characterization of contaminated water samples (DTU, 1998). His post doc. research focused at risk assessment, chemical, and biological aspects of groundwater pollution. His main research area is today environmental risk assessment of nanomaterials. He has been the project leader at DTU for several research projects receiving both national and international funding, e.g. the EU FP7 projects NanoImpactNet and Engineered Nanoparticles - Review of Health and Environmental Safety (ENRHES). He is the author of 185 scientific peer-reviewed contributions (46 of which are ISI paper) and has presented his research at more than 50 international conferences. He served as associate editor for the highly ranked journal Water Research (2004-2008) and he is a member of the board of NanoDTU – DTU’s interdisciplinary center for nanotechnology. In 2008 he received the Environmental Award (40,000 Euro) for his research in environmental effects of nanomaterials, in 2009 he was awarded the “PhD Supervisor of the Year” award at DTU, and 2011 he received the Statoil Award. In 2011 he received a 1.2 MEuro grant from the European Research Council to study environmental effects of nanomaterials.
