Dr. Weber holds a diploma in bioinformatics and a Ph.D. This included the development of a higher-tier test system for the assessment of pulsed exposure effects on algae together with the development of an algae population model.
Dr. Weber has more than 8 years of experience with the performance of environmental exposure and risk assessments within the registration process for plant protection products, in close cooperation with ecotoxicology and regulatory affairs. In addition, he has wide experience in software programming.
Dr. Weber works in the area of environmental, ecological and effect modelling as part of the regulatory requirements for environmental risk assessments of plant protection products. The working areas range from standard exposure modelling with regulatory required models and derivation of modelling endpoints, to higher-tier risk assessments for aquatic organisms, analysis and evaluation of pesticide exposure patterns in surface waters and design of study profiles, design of aquatic higher-tier ecotoxicological studies and more. In addition, he develops software tools for automation and simulation models as supporting tools for higher-tier risk assessments.
