Dr Ioannis Basinas

Senior Scientist

Ioannis is an exposure scientist and chartered statistician with a background in epidemiology, working as a Senior Scientist in IOM's Research Division. His research activities focus primarily on the assessment of human exposure to dangerous substances including bio-aerosols, inorganic dusts, pesticides, nanomaterials and other chemical agents both in support of regulatory and epidemiological research.  Ioannis has substantial experience on the assessment of exposure to organic dusts and the related health risks particularly among agricultural working populations and a strong interest on the use of statistical modelling as a method for improving quantitative exposure and risk assessment for population studies. Recent activities, among others, include research aiming to characterise levels of exposure to pesticide in workplaces, the improvement of methodologies available for pesticide exposure in occupational epidemiological research, evaluation exercises of the exposure tools used within REACH, the exposure assessment for a study of cognitive impairment in former English professional footballers, and the evaluation of trends in exposure to dangerous substances at an EU level. Ioannis won the Thomas Bedford Memorial Prize in 2018.
