Bert Morrens' research focuses on the perception and assessment of environmental and health risks. Since 2006, he has participated in several projects that determine the integrated exposure of environmental pollutants in people's bodies through a technique called humane biomonitoring. Within these interdisciplinary projects he focuses on the social impact and significance of humane biomonitoring for participants, (local) stakeholders, scientists and policy makers. This is done by setting up local participatory procedures and inter and transdisciplinary dialogue. Topics covered are communication, perception, ethics and policy translation. Throughout this 'boundary work' he pays special attention to mechanisms of social vulnerability and exclusion, health inequalities and environmental justice.
