Dr. Paolo Zannetti, QEP is the President and Founder of EnviroComp, Inc.1 and the non-profit EnviroComp Institute2. He is also the Director of the Air Pollution Scientific Initiative (APSI)3.
Dr. Zannetti has performed studies and scientific research in environmental sciences for 50 years. His activities have covered pure research in the fields of atmospheric sciences and numerical modeling, written publications, seminars and courses, project management, environmental consulting, editorial productions, and expert testimony. His major field of investigation and competence is air pollution. He has written more than 300 publications, and 40+ books and book chapters, including the book Air Pollution Modeling4, completed in 1990, which was the first comprehensive book in the field and is still today a widely used textbook. A 4-volume, multi-author, revised and expanded edition of this book has been completed5 in 2010 under his direction and chief editorial management.
Dr. Zannetti has studied air quality problems all over the world, often using computer models to simulate the transport and fate of atmospheric chemicals. In most of these cases, he simulated the ambient concentrations caused by the emissions using his own computer models and/or those developed and recommended by government agencies, such as the US Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA).
In addition to his academic and scientific achievements, Dr. Zannetti is very familiar with litigation consulting and has provided testimony at depositions and trials in more than 60 cases.
