Dr. J. Michael Davis is a Senior Health Scientist with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency in the National Center for Environmental Assessment at Research Triangle Park, North Carolina, within EPA's Office of Research and Development. He obtained the Ph.D. degree in Experimental Psychology at Duke University and held postdoctoral research fellowships with the Department of Zoology at the University of Oxford, England, and the Biological Sciences Research Center, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He has also served as a Principal Investigator, Research Associate, and Lecturer at Duke University and Lecturer at North Carolina Central University. He is a member of various professional societies, including the Society of Toxicology, the Neurobehavioral Teratology Society, and the Behavioral Toxicology Society, as well as the advisory committee for the Biological Effects of Low-Level Exposures (BELLE) initiative. His professional activities are primarily in the area of assessing the public health risks associated with fuels and fuel additives (e.g. lead, manganese, alcohols, ethers). His research interests include various neurotoxicological risk assessment issues, such as cross-species extrapolation, non-monotonic ("U-shaped") dose-response relationships, and meta-analytic approaches to data synthesis.
