After receiving a Ph.D. in chemistry from New York University, Halina Brown conducted research on cancer induction by chemical carcinogens. Interest in environmental cancer policy led her in 1980 to become chief toxicologist and public health policy advisor to the Commissioner of the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection. In 1985 she joined the faculty at Clark University. During two decades at Clark, Professor Brown’s interests expanded to include: the role of modern corporation in sustainable development; the interplay of technology, culture, institutions and markets in achieving a transition to a sustainable economic system; cross-country comparative environmental policy, with emphasis on Poland and the European Union; and corporate management of environmental and occupational hazards in a global economy.
Brown has conducted research in several international settings. In 1991 she was a visiting professor at the Institute of Occupational and Environmental Medicine in Warsaw, Poland, where she studied the relationship between pollution and lung cancer. In 2001 she was a visiting professor at University of Delft, the Netherlands, where she studied sociotechnical innovation through small scale experiments. In 2005 she was a visiting professor at University of Utrecht, the Netherlands, where she studied the socio-technical system of housing construction and its barriers to innovation.
Brown is a fellow of the International Society for Risk Analysis, fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, a board member of the Greening of Industry Network, and has served on numerous advisory committees for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the National Science Foundation, the National Academy of Sciences, and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. She has consulted extensively on matters of health risk assessment, toxicology, and public policy.
