Qualified on the content I am responsible for because: Dr Nicholas J. Ashbolt is a Title 42 Senior Research Microbiologist with the National Exposure Research Laboratory, U.S. EPA Cincinnati (since January 2007). Previously he was Head of the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of New South Wales (UNSW) Sydney. He has 25 years of experience in environmental microbiology, with a focus on the fate and transport of environmental pathogens. Over the last 10 years he has worked in joint Australian-Sweden and European programs developing methods to interpret pathogen data with the aid of quantitative microbial risk assessment within an urban water sustainability framework. This work has contributed to the risk-based approach adopted in the recently published WHO recreational, drinking and reuse water guidelines. He has published 27 book chapters, 110 journal papers and over 100 conference proceedings since he joined UNSW in 1994. His research at EPA is focused on distribution system pathogen risks and application of QMRA to drinking and recreational waters.
