Course Instructor: Dr. P. Andrew Karam

Since 1981 I have worked primarily in areas related to radiation safety; as a radiation safety professional, a scientist and professor, a consultant, or an instructor. I am also a writer, with over 200 encyclopedia articles and several books in print, and an 8-book series (Controversies in Science, Facts on File) in the works - not to mention my scientific and technical writing (6 book chapters, a number of refereed papers, over 100 scientific presentations, several hundred encyclopedia articles, fact sheets, and over 100 technical articles and editorials in scientific and technical journals and newsletters).
