Who we are

Chief Environmental Scientist


Victoria’s first-ever Chief Environmental Scientist, Dr Andrea Hinwood is here to ensure that Victorians are provided with robust, science-based advice and information about their environment.

An accomplished environmental scientist with specialist expertise in environmental exposures and human health,, she provides advice to EPA’s leadership team and other senior decision makers, including the Minister for Environment and Victoria’s Chief Health Officer.

Dr Hinwood’s role very much reflects EPA’s commitment to putting science first and foremost as we fight to protect the environment and human health.
