Dr. Breskey's area of research includes characterization of workplace exposures to airborne particles and chemicals, hazard assessment of emerging technologies including nanomaterials and nanoparticles, and the prevention of workplace injuries and illnesses in marginalized worker populations. Currently, he is exploring chemical exposures and occupational hazards typically found in nail salons through literature reviews, quantitative risk assessment and field-based exposure assessments. Other areas of interest include: Physical and Chemical Hazards of Photodynamic Therapies Including Safety Recommendations for Proper Clinical Administration by Healthcare Staff; The Particle Size Distribution of Aerosols Generated During the Shieled Metal Arc Welding of Stainless Steel in the Breathing-Zone and in Isokinetic Chamber; and, Climate Change, Green Jobs, Healthy Workplaces: Mitigation and Adaptation in the Energy Sector with Specific Review for Worker.
