Prior to joining HPE, Josh worked in several academic labs as a research technician, assistant laboratory manager at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa and, most recently, as a research fellow at the University of Oslo. His academic journey took him across several fields, from cancer immunotherapy to paleoclimatology, where he used his background in biochemistry, innate curiosity and love of data to tackle multidisciplinary research questions. Josh takes a similar approach to his work at HPE: Applying biochemistry fundamentals and an understanding of the latest academic literature to a wide range of Industrial Hygiene projects.
