In 2006, Dr. Timothy R. McAuley became the first doctoral graduate of the Environmental Science and Engineering (ES&E) program, where he was a recognized leader in the area of air quality and exposure assessment with his research focused on ultrafine particle exposures and heart rate variability.
In 2009, Dr. McAuley successfully designed a built an air quality consulting firm, Consulting for Health, Air, Nature, & a Greener Environment, LLC (CHANGE) that today has grown to providing international consulting in air quality, climate change, transportation planning and impacts, human health risk assessment, indoor and ambient air quality studies, and several other areas of air quality consulting. Since the inception of his company, he has led several air quality studies both domestically and internationally and has become a recognized expert in fields of air quality and human health exposure assessment. CHANGE provides support to several small, medium, and large firms to which many are Fortune 100 and 500 companies.
Dr. Timothy McAuley's direct research interests include understanding traffic dynamics through interpretation of near roadside and downwind pollution gradients of various mobile source air toxins, ultrafine particles, and gases produced from combustion and their impacts on human health.
In only 5 years of post graduation, Dr. McAuley has become a member of several National Academy of Science Boards and Subcommittees in the areas of aviation, transportation and air quality, indoor air quality, exposure assessment, and human health. In addition, he is currently an elected member of the Indoor Environmental Standards Organization (IESO) Research Committee, Vice Chair of Air & Waste Management Technical Advisory Committee, Air & Waste Management AB-1 Particulate Matter Committee, and Treasurer of the International Society of Exposure Science (ISES).
