RSB/BTS and European Registered Toxicologist

Chris joined bibra at the beginning of 2013 after gaining an MChem in Chemistry with Forensic Science from the University of Manchester, and has been a European Registered Toxicologist since 2018.

He leads on several of bibra’s projects relating to the REACH regulation, helping clients in several sectors meet their registration obligations and respond to evaluation decisions.

Outside of the office, Chris enjoys a wide range of music, and can often be found at the piano or with one of his guitars. He is an avid sports fan and enjoys regular trips to visit family and friends around Europe.
