The American Cleaning Institute (ACI) has Nathan Sell to its new position as director of regulatory science, according to a press release.

In this role, Sell will be responsible for development and management of research strategies related to the safety of cleaning product ingredients, serve as a point of contact for ACI’s chemical management and regulatory programs and help expand scientific understanding of ACI chemistry tools and technologies.

Sell joins ACI from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), where he was a chemical review manager in the Office of Pesticide Programs, a technical writer and editor for the Office of Science Coordination and Policy and an ORISE research participant in the Office of Water.

Previously he was an editorial board member for the University of Pennsylvania’s WH2O Journal and a coordinator for the Initiative for Global Environmental Leadership (IGEL) at the Wharton School. He also served as a corps member for Teach for America in Philadelphia.

“Nathan comes on board with extensive knowledge in risk-based decision making and technical writing, having worked at the EPA in the Offices of Pesticide Programs and Science Coordination and Policy,” says Dr. James Kim, ACI vice president, Science & Regulatory Affairs. “His experience leading a team of scientists, economists and technical staff for pesticide reviews will translate well to working with ACI Task Forces and Work Groups.”

Sell graduated Trinity College in Hartford, Connecticut with a bachelor of science degree in biology and a minor in environmental science and holds a master’s degree in environmental studies from the University of Pennsylvania.
