His term begins immediately and lasts until Sept. 30, 2022.
"I am honored to be selected to join the Clean Air Scientific Advisory Committee at the Environmental Protection Agency and contribute my expertise in environmental toxicology," Kendall said. "To be nationally selected to contribute to the important work on behalf of air quality in the nation is also an important opportunity in one's scientific career. I look forward to contributing my best input to help the Clean Air Scientific Advisory Committee do the best job possible."
As a member of the Clean Air Scientific Advisory Committee, Kendall will provide advice on technical issues underlying the EPA's National Ambient Air Quality Standards.
"I am committed to employing sound science in the EPA's pursuit of resolutions to a broad range of urgent environmental issues," said EPA program administrator Andrew R. Wheeler. "Committee members' scientific and technical expertise, experience and innovation play critical roles in the success of the EPA's approach to environmental protection."
Wheeler said Kendall's expertise in ecology will be a great asset to the committee.
