Phillip H. Jenkins, PhD provides technical oversight for Bowser-Morner’s radon reference laboratory, which is the only independent laboratory in the US with a walk-in radon test chamber.  Currently his time is devoted to plans for expanding the laboratory by adding a second walk-in test chamber with state-of-the-art control and monitoring systems.  He also works on upgrading all of the Quality Assurance documentation for the laboratory and serves on committees for developing national radon standards. 

Phil began Bowser-Morner's radon reference lab in 1991 and continues to provide technical oversight.  The lab provides quality assurance testing for all types of radon measurement devices for clients including instrument manufacturers, laboratories, radon testing companies, state and local health agencies, and those doing research or product development.

Phil has been a Certified Health Physicist since 1980 with comprehensive certification from the American Board of Health Physics.  He earned a BS in Chemical Engineering and an MS and PhD in Bionucleonics all from Purdue University.  Prior to joining Bowser-Morner, Phil was a radiological hygienist for the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA), and a project manager involved with radionuclides and cleanup of the US Department of Energy's Mound Plant in Miamisburg, OH.  Phil is also an instructor for professional courses involving detection, measurement and mitigation of radon.

In his free time, Phil enjoys singing and doing volunteer work at his church.  He enjoys traveling with his wife, particularly in the Four Corners region of the Southwest US where he can visit ruin sites from the ancient cultures of that area.
