Cardno ChemRisk Celebrates Pi Day

Cardno ChemRisk staff across the country celebrated Pi Day (March 14, 2017) while enjoying slices of pie and conversations about mathematics. Pi Day is an annual, worldwide celebration of the mathematical constant pi and is observed on March 14th since pi is approximately equal to 3.14 (out to three significant figures).  Pi is the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter, and it is commonly represented in mathematics by the greek letter π.  Pi is the same value for all circles of any size, has been calculated to over one trillion digits beyond its decimal point, and will continue infinitely without repetition or pattern (as it is an irrational and transcendental number).  To learn more facts about pi or Pi Day, please visit: http://www.piday.org/.

Dr. Anders Abelmann is a Supervising Health Scientist and Practice Area Lead for Industrial Hygiene and Exposure Science with Cardno ChemRisk. His principal areas of training and expertise include industrial hygiene, exposure and risk assessment, and occupational safety. He has been involved in researching, measuring and reconstructing exposure, and assessing risk to consumers and workers exposed to a variety of chemicals such as carbon monoxide, ethylene oxide, propylene oxide, toluene, styrene, formaldehyde, asbestos, and diacetyl.  Dr. Abelmann completed his doctorate in Public Health Science, with emphases in industrial hygiene and occupational safety, at the University of Illinois at Chicago. For his doctoral dissertation, he designed, executed, and evaluated a series of welding fume exposure experiments under laboratory-controlled conditions. A fractional factorial experimental design was used to evaluate process, environmental and physiological variables’ impacts on breathing zone concentrations. His master’s thesis research involved a life-cycle assessment of vegetable proteins, during which he evaluated the environmental impact associated with various protein substitutes in food products.
