Dr. Aly is a toxicologist with an interdisciplinary background in biology, chemistry, and environmental and regulatory toxicology. Her doctoral thesis focused on the development of a novel analytical method for rapid exposure assessment of complex environmental samples, particularly as it relates to disaster response. 

Dr. Aly has six years of laboratory research experience and is skilled in analytical chemistry techniques, including LC-MS, GC-MS, ICP-MS, and RapidFireTM Solid Phase Extraction- Ion Mobility Spectrometry — Mass Spectrometry (SPE-IMS-MS). She brings this expertise to bear on a range of technical areas, including safety assessments for medical devices and pharmaceuticals, and environmental risk assessments.

Prior to joining Exponent, Dr. Aly earned her Ph.D. in Toxicology from Texas A&M University and earned a BS in Biology and an MS in Environmental Health at Washington State University. She also worked in a post-Master's internship at Pacific Northwest National Labs (PNNL). As a research associate in the Texas A&M Superfund Center, she was directly involved in exposure assessment efforts all the way from on-site sample collection, to development of analytical techniques and analysis of biological and environmental samples. Dr. Aly has also completed a 40-hour HAZWOPER training and Incident Command System and Emergency Operations training. Dr. Aly has presented her work at various regional and national conferences, published in peer-reviewed scientific journals, and is an active member of both the Society of Toxicology and the Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry.
