Professor Richard Mann invited Dr Mariana Alves-Pereira to speak about the harm to health from LFN and infrasound. She spent three days visiting Ontario’s largest industrial wind power project and meeting with residents who are now experiencing the cumulative and irreversible harm from industrial wind turbines that surround their homes, before the presentation.

Mariana Alves-Pereira holds a B.Sc. in Physics (State University of New York at Stony Brook), a M.Sc. in Biomedical Engineering (Drexel University) and a Ph.D. in Environmental Sciences (New University of Lisbon).
She joined the multidisciplinary research team investigating the biological response to infrasound and low frequency noise in 1988, and has been the team’s Assistant Coordinator since 1999.
Recipient of three scientific awards, and author and co-author of over 50 scientific publications (including peer-reviewed and conference presentations), Dr. Alves-Pereira is currently Associate Professor at Lusófona University teaching Biophysics and Biomaterials in health science programs (nursing and radiology), as well as Physics and Hygiene in workplace safety & health programs.
