Keith E. Levine is senior director of RTI’s Center for Analytical Sciences. He has more than 20 years of experience developing, validating, and applying analytical methods for measurement of manmade and naturally occurring chemicals in consumer products, biological tissues and fluids, and the environment. He is passionate about leveraging analytical chemistry to find collaborative solutions to major challenges in science and engineering.
Dr. Levine and his group have an established track record of conducting quality, scientifically-defensible research measurements and analytical services for both public and private sector clients. Research and analytical service projects have included measurement of manmade and naturally occurring minerals, heavy metals, per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances, flame retardants, nanoscale materials, and many other compound classes. His research developing and applying methods for determination of heavy metal and metal species (e.g., lead, arsenic, thallium, mercury, tin, vanadium) has tangibly contributed to changes in domestic public policy designed to protect human health and the environment. He has authored or coauthored nearly 60 articles in peer-reviewed journals, including the American Journal of Epidemiology, Biological Trace Elements Research, and Environmental Health Perspectives, and Environmental Research.
