Dr. Natalie von Götz is an exposure specialist with the Swiss Federal Office of Public Health and a lecturer at ETH Zurich. A chemist by training, she worked in industry from 1997-2007 in environmental exposure modelling. From 2008-2018 Natalie lead a research group for modelling consumer exposure at ETH, and during this period became an active member of ISES. Her research interests encompass the methodology for consumer exposure modelling, aggregate consumer exposure to chemicals of concern and mixtures, as well as translating academic insights into information useful for decision makers. As an external expert for exposure science she regularly contributes to the risk assessment of chemicals at European authorities, such as the European Food Safety Agency (EFSA) and the scientific committee on consumer safety (SCCS). Natalie is currently an associate editor for JESSE, which she greatly enjoys (and would enjoy even more if more people were willing to volunteer as reviewers!). Natalie is an active board member of the new ISES-Europe chapter, which is currently setting up an exposure science strategy for Europe. Natalie is also serving as one of the co-chairs for our next meeting (ISES-ISIAQ 2019)- she invites everybody to join her in beautiful Kaunas, Lithuania next August!
