Stilling: Forskningssjef
Telefon: 92265694
Seksjon: Forskningsfaglig ledelse
Kevin Thomas har dr. grad innen geokjemi knyttet til olje- og miljøproblematikk og er forskningsleder ved seksjon for økotoksikologi.

Thomas er ansvarlig for at NIVAs økotoksikologiske laboratorium følger GLP (god laboratoriepraksis), og har en grundig og omfattende forståelse av REACH - regelverket for registrering, evaluering, autorisering, og restriksjoner av kjemikalier. Han arbeider hovedsakelig med effekter og risikovurderinger av kjemikalier, bl.a. kloakkanalyser av legemiddel- og narkotikaforbruk, oljerelatert forurensning og mikroplast.

Thomas er invitert medlem i Det Internasjonale Rådet for Havforsknings arbeidsgruppe på de biologiske effektene av miljøgifter og EUs narkotikaovervåkningssenter (EMCDDA), samt leder av SCORE-nettverket som står for kloakkovervåkning av kjemikalier over hele Europa. Han har gitt råd og veiledning til blant annet Miljødirektoratet og det europeiske kjemikaliebyrået (ECHA).

Thomas har en rekke internasjonale verv, blant annet som medredaktør av det anerkjente internasjonale tidsskriftet Science of the Total Environment, som forskningspanelekspert i Norges Forskningsråds NANO2021-program og som medlem av opprykkspanelet ved University of California, Berkeley. Han er en ettertraktet veileder for doktorgradsstudenter.
