SEG Member

Simon Mann heads the Physical Dosimetry Department at Public Health England’s Centre for Radiation, Chemical and Environmental Hazards, and is responsible for programmes of scientific work to develop health-related advice on exposures to electromagnetic fields (EMFs) and optical radiation across the UK. He is a chartered electrical engineer, and received his BSc in Electronics and his DPhil in Electromagnetic Compatibility from the University of York in 1988 and 1993 respectively. His own research focuses on exposure assessments for EMFs, including methods for assessing new sources and situations, and supporting biological and epidemiological studies. Simon was Secretary to the Group, which developed the UK's national advice on limiting exposures to electromagnetic fields and he is Secretary to the independent Advisory Group on Non-ionising Radiation (AGNIR), which prepares reviews of the biological effects of NIR and advises on research priorities. He was a member of the IARC Working Group that evaluated the carcinogenic potential of radiofrequency EMFs in 2011 and he is presently working with WHO to develop its Environmental Health Criteria monograph on radiofrequency fields. Simon is a member of the UK technical standards committee that considers human exposures to EMFs and he has represented the UK at European technical standards meetings and in meetings organised by the EU Commission about EMFs. Simon was  appointed as a member of the ICNIRP Scientific Expert Group (SEG) in January 2015.
