Steven is our Senior Scientist and one of the inventors of the core wristband/testing technology behind this Kickstarter campaign. While at MyExposome, Inc., Dr. O’Connell has aided in the early stages of the enterprise, including intellectual property procurement with provisional patent (14/597,817) filing in January, 2015. He obtained his Ph.D. in 2014, after completing multiple investigations with passive sampling technologies including silicone strips in aqueous deployments, polyethylene samplers, and silicone wristbands. Dr. O'Connell has authored and co-authored 11 peer reviewed publications.
Kim A. Anderson
(kim.anderson @ myexposome.com)
Dr. Kim Anderson is a professor at Oregon State University in the Department of Environmental & Molecular Toxicology. Dr. Anderson received her PhD in Chemistry from Washington State University in 1989. One prong of her research efforts are to optimize, develop and validate passive sampling devices for individual users/customers including companion animals and livestock, and to further illustrate and compare the novel passive samplers with conventional measures in real-world epidemiological studies. She develops robust bio-analytical tools, methods, and approaches to generate desirable objective data concerning chemical exposures of many contaminants including unmonitored contaminants. She is an expert in the field of toxicology and chemistry and holds numerous US patents and one European patent. (06/851,643, 60/793,909, 60/711,826, 09/210,358, #6,324,531, 99309933.2-2201). She has over 60 peer reviewed publications related to the technology being used by MyExposome.
