As a member of the human health group within Exponent, Ms. Evans specialises in non-dietary risk assessment for plant protection products, biocides and industrial chemicals. Ms. Evans has experience in a wide range of human health exposure models, including using the latest EFSA online calculator for plant protection products (EFSA, 2022).

Prior to joining the human health group Ms. Evans was a member of the regulatory efficacy team evaluating efficacy studies and preparing biological assessment dossiers for plant protection products. She has also worked on whole dossier compilation for plant protection product and biocide submissions as a general regulatory consultant. Before becoming a consultant, she worked for over 10 years for a contract research organisation (CRO) conducting, monitoring and evaluating field trials on behalf of farmers and product manufacturers. Due to her background conducting field trials Ms. Evans has practical knowledge of the equipment and practices used on farms. Her knowledge of product efficacy enables her to make practical recommendations when usage changes are required in order to pass risk assessments.

In addition to non-dietary exposure and efficacy, Ms. Evans also has experience of writing study summaries and evaluating data for toxicology and residues sections and preparing import tolerance submissions to national requirements. She also has knowledge of the design and evaluation of literature searches for regulatory submission.

At Exponent Ms. Evans is a designated QMS representative covering the Harrogate and Basel offices working to ISO 9001:2015, which is the quality management standard used throughout Exponent.
