  • B.S., Environmental and Ecological Sciences, Elon University, 2015

With over eight years of experience in ecotoxicology, Dr. Milone has a diverse background exploring the adverse effects of agrochemicals across a variety of environmental contexts. Joe's primary expertise is in pollinator protection and risk assessment, where his past academic research examined the impacts of exposure on honey bee reproductive health. His experience leading field and laboratory-based experimentation with honey bees provides a strong foundation for supporting pollinator study design, analysis, and interpretation for regulatory purposes in addition to an understanding of the biological relevance and broader implications of pollinator risk. Joe also has experience providing support for GLP contract research with honey bees for EPA regulatory submissions. Joe previously worked for the USEPA where he was an ecotoxicologist working on ecological risk assessments for conventional pesticides with an emphasis on supporting pollinator-related programs.

At Exponent, Dr. Milone primarily provides Federal Insecticide, Fungicide and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA) and Endangered Species Act (ESA) regulatory support.
