Dr. Kahve has gained experience as a toxicologist in various industries with a focus on human health. She has experience in evaluating chemical hazards, exposure and risk assessment from the agrochemical and tobacco industries.   

Dr. Kahve also has experience in using computational prediction models (Leadscope, Derek Nexus and QSAR Toolbox) for predicting the toxicity of chemicals with limited or no hazard data. She gained her Ph.D. from the University of Exeter. Her research sought to investigate the mechanisms by which long-chain saturated fatty acids induce cytotoxicity, and which unsaturated fatty acids prevent cytotoxicity when combined with saturates, in vitro. During this time, she developed and validated a novel methodology using Raman microspectroscopy to visualise and quantify changes in lipid deposition and composition within pancreatic beta cells.

Dr. Kahve works across the Chemical Regulation & Food Safety and Health Sciences practices. Her work focuses on the compilation of regulatory dossiers for plant protection products, toxicity predictions of chemical metabolites using in silico tools, and supporting testifying consultants in the United States with litigation casework.
