While preparing for our tenth anniversary we have spent a great deal of time going back through the archives and discussing the fantastic guests we have had over the years. One name that stands out is J. David Miller, PhD. Radio Joe saw Dr. Miller speak and spent some time talking to him at the Microbiology of the Built Environment Conference in Boulder CO. His presentation was one that every IAQ, mold and disaster restoration professional should hear. Professor Miller joins us us this week, listen in and LEARN MORE this week on IAQ Radio!
Dr. Miller received his secondary education at the University of New Brunswick, before studying at the University of Portsmouth in England, where he was also a NATO Science Postdoctoral Fellow. He began his post-university career at Agriculture Canada in 1982, and became head of the Fusarium mycotoxin program in 1988. He became a Professor & NSERC Research Chair at Carleton University in 2000. From 1999-2008, he was a visiting scientist and science advisor in the air health effects section of Health Canada. His work involves the development of methods to assess exposure to determinants of respiratory health in indoor environments and on fungal toxins in food and feed. Dr. Miller has published 300 papers on fungi and fungal toxins and has co-written 9 books on the public health aspects of exposures to fungi, and has several patents. He has served on many national and international committees on mold and dampness in the built environment. Currently he serves on the American Academy of Allergy Asthma & Immunology committee that produces practice parameters for environmental allergens.
