Charles J. Weschler is a Professor at the School of Public Health, the Department of Environmental and Occupational Medicine and the Environmental and Occupational Health Sciences Institute (EOHSI) at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey (UMDNJ)/Robert Wood Johnson Medical School & Rutgers University (New Jersey). He is also a Visiting Professor at the International Centre for Indoor Environment and Energy, Technical University of Denmark (DTU, Lyngby, Denmark). Prof. Weschler is widely recognized as a pioneer of indoor environmental chemistry. His groundbreaking work over the past 3 decades has contributed greatly to the current understanding of indoor pollutant exposures and consequent health effects. He is author of more than 100 articles in peer-reviewed journals and 12 articles and chapters in books, and has served on several national committees, including the Science Advisory Board of the Environmental Protection Agency and three National Academy of Sciences panels.

Prof. Weschler earned his Ph.D. in Chemistry from the University of Chicago in 1974. After a postdoctoral fellowship with Prof. Fred Basolo at Northwestern University, he joined Bell Laboratories, where he developed a distinguished career, spearheading efforts to understand the chemistry and physics of indoor pollution. He was appointed in EOHSI in 2000 and at DTU in 2001 and held guest professorships at the University of Innsbruck (Austria), the University of Kuopio (Finland), the University of Umea (Sweden) and the University of Texas at Austin (USA).
