Researcher biography

Dr Daniel Drage is a Lecturer in Environmental Health at the University of Birmingham; and an Honorary Research Fellow at the Queensland Alliance for Environmental Health Sciences, University of Queensland. He holds a PhD in environmental chemistry and specialises in analytical chemistry and mass spectrometry method development for a range of applications including environmental monitoring and human biomonitoring.

Daniel’s early research investigated the presence of brominated micropollutants in the steel industry and their presence in the environment. He has since undertaken a range of research projects investigating persistent organic pollutants (POPs) and emerging contaminants in a variety of matrices investigating pathways of human in environmental exposure.

Daniel has partnered with QAEHS on a number of studies including recent human biomonitoring studies investigating links between various pollutants and subsequent endocrine responses.
