International Mercury Regulation

Principal Investigator: Noelle Selin

Professor Selin’s research focuses on understanding of how mercury, a toxic pollutant, travels and cycles in the environment, under various policy scenarios. This research will be important for the implementation of the Minamata Convention, a global treaty to protect human health and the environment from the adverse effects of mercury. The IPL is working with Professor Selin to convene scientists and policy makers to help inform the implementation of the Minamata Convention based on scientific research.
