Ms. Dahlberg is an environmental health scientist who specializes in health risk assessment, practical toxicology, and regulatory science. She has extensive experience with conducting systematic literature reviews and meta-analyses, evaluating and assessing biases in epidemiologic studies, data visualization including the use of GIS software, quantitative exposure science, and using novel paradigms for hazard identification. Her experience includes assessing human health risk from exposure to a variety of chemical agents, such as organic compounds (e.g., benzene, methacrylates), metals / metalloids (e.g., lead, arsenic), and perflourinated compounds (e.g., perfluorooctanoic acid or PFOS).

Prior to joining Exponent, Ms. Dahlberg received her M.S. in environmental health sciences with a concentration in toxicology from UC Berkeley School of Public Health. Additionally, she brings a strong foundation in the core sciences. She received her B.S. in biology and B.A. in chemistry from Pepperdine University, where she was heavily involved in laboratory research in the fields of microbiology and physical chemistry.
