Alvaro Alvarado presents seminar at UCR

On April 2, Alvaro Alvarado (Ph.D., 1998) returned to UCR to speak in the Environmental Toxicology Seminar series. His talk was entitled, "Quantifying the Health Impacts of Exposure to Fine Particulate Matter” and drew upon his experience working with both the federal EPA and his more recent experience working at the California Air Resources Board. Following his seminar at lunch, he talked to a group of our graduate students about working in government and his experiences in applying and interviewing for positions. It was an enjoyable visit and I know the students appreciated his insights about job hunting. [I forgot to take a picture during his visit but a recent picture of Alvaro and his daughter can be seen on the ETOX blog as one of last summer's posts.]
