Ifeoluwa A. Bamgbose, M.S., DABT
Senior Environmental Scientist
Ms. Bamgbose is an environmental scientist with a background in environmental and general toxicology and biochemistry. Her areas of expertise include environmental toxicology and risk assessment; pharmaceutical environmental risk assessment; weight-of-evidence evaluation; and consumer product safety assessment. Ms. Bamgbose is skilled in the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS), US EPA Safer Choice standard, the GreenScreen® Method, and similar hazard-based frameworks.
Before joining Gradient, Ms. Bamgbose coordinated efforts associated with the registration of chemicals and preparation of safety data sheets (SDSs). She provided chemical-specific toxicological hazard evaluation, according to the GHS guidelines. While receiving her graduate degree, Ms. Bamgbose performed work assessing the toxicity of diesel and plant-based biodiesels to terrestrial and aquatic organisms.
US EPA Safer Choice Chemical Profile Reviews: Managed and conducted several critical ecotoxicological chemical profile reviews of consumer products in support of US EPA Safer Choice label application submissions.
Chemical Evaluation: Conducted an extensive qualitative risk assessment, involving the review and summary of hazard and exposure assessments of a biocide from various agencies, such as US EPA, AICIS, and ECHA RAC, to communicate risk and safety concerns with respect to workers, the public, and the environment.
Pharmaceutical Environmental Risk Assessments: Evaluated the environmental risk associated with the societal use of pharmaceutical drugs, compliant with either European (EMA) or US (FDA) risk assessment guidelines. Reviewed environmental fate and toxicity test data.
Human Health Risk Evaluation: Performed an in-depth risk evaluation of the reproductive and developmental toxicity of an organic, coated titanium oxide compound.
Ecological Risk Assessments: Conducted ecological risk assessments on multiple receptors exposed to metals and chemicals from numerous US industrial sites.
