PhD student in Risk Assessment, focusing on benchmark dose modelling

Antero Vieira Silva

Postdoctoral researcher

About me

I'm a driven and passionate toxicologist currently developing research at the Institute of Environmental Medicine (IMM).


PhD-student in Risk Assessment, focusing on the Benchmark dose modelling approach. I am open to new projects and cooperations so if you have sopme ideas that you would like to discuss, please send me an e-mail!


The focus of my research is to assess and improve the Benchmark dose modelling as a tool for risk and hazard characterization. I am particularly interested in potentially hazardous effects of chemical exposure to human health. I have been researching PFAS, PCBs and dose-response modelling for pharmaceutical development purposes.


Feel free to contact me if you want to get in touch!
