Ecotoxicology and risk assessment
Helena joined CEA in 2020 as an ecotoxicologist and risk assessor, preparing regulatory dossiers for non-target organisms with a primary focus on higher methods. Prior to joining CEA, Helena worked in HSE CRD (Heath and Safety Executive; Chemicals Regulation Division) working within the Ecotoxicology team. She evaluated dossiers for active substances and formulated products (for Plant Protection Products as well as biocides) both at the UK and EU level. This involved evaluation of studies and risk assessments for all groups of non-target organisms at both lower and higher tiers.
Helena holds an MBiolSci in Biology with a focus on evolutionary ecology.
