Mona Shum

Mona Shum

Adjunct Professor, MSc, CIH


Ms. Shum is a certified industrial hygienist with nearly 20 years of experience in exposure assessment, chemical review, and environmental public health. She has reconstructed asbestos, beryllium, EMF, lead and benzene exposures to various types of workers by examining the existing literature, identifying the possible exposure for tasks performed in each occupation, and then determining the likely exposure in the timeframe of interest. 

Ms. Shum has been designated as an expert witness in several litigation cases, with most cases reaching settlement before deposition or trial testimony was necessary.  However, she has been deposed multiple times and has trial testimony experience in cases involving mould and legionella exposures. 

Ms. Shum also has extensive teaching experience having taught courses at various universities and at workshops at large conferences such as the American Industrial Hygiene Conference and Exposition.
