Robert Amundson, PhD

Robert Amundson is a retired plant physiologist. His research focused on the impacts of air pollutants on crops and forests while at The Boyce Thompson Institute for Plant Research at Cornell University. He moved to Portland, Oregon, in the 1990s and worked as an environmental consultant. His background in monitoring air pollutants led him to work with Portland neighborhoods to help them determine what was in their air. He helped found Oregon Toxics Alliance and continues to work with that organization and individuals statewide on issues associated with air toxics.
