Dr. Hamad is environmental chemist and toxicologist. She has a Ph.D. in the Environmental Chemistry and Technology from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Her postdoctoral research is at the University of Maryland, School of Public Health. Dr. Hamad has gained an experience in the field of environmental toxicants-related health problems from her work with Prof. James Jay Schauer at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Dr. Hamad has also worked with experts from the Biomedical Sciences School-King’s College London, UK. Her work at the University of Maryland/Battelle Tobacco Center of Regulatory Science gave her the opportunity to further her research and experience in the field of Environmental Health. Her research is devoted to understand the impact of toxicants exposure on human health. A large portion of her research has been devoted to determining organic and inorganic (i.e. toxic metals) chemicals in the environmental samples, their toxicity and biomarkers after exposure. Dr. Hamad is also interested in understanding the factors that could control and modify the levels and toxicity of these chemicals after exposure. She also uses mathematical models to understand the impact of long-term exposure to these toxicants on the level of cancer and non-cancer risk. She uses a multitude of traditional analytical methods and collaborates with experts from different parts of the world to conduct her researches.
