pesticides are in our food?
there lead in our paint, and if so, does it get into our soil too?
Radford’s research is centered on questions like these. These topics
are part of exposure science, in which we learn about our
environment, what contaminants are in it, and how these contaminants can affect
our health. Research in exposure science uses a broad range of
tools, including extractions and chromatography for pesticide analysis, and
acid digestion and atomic absorption for metals analysis.
Radford’s research on exposure has broadened to include not only, “What
environmental toxicants are we exposed to?” but also, “What happens when
students are exposed to active learning techniques?” Dr. Radford is
interested in how Process Oriented Guided Inquiry Learning (POGIL) and
Community Engaged pedagogy helps to develop not only a student’s content
knowledge, but their whole person. Dr. Radford studies how through
these engaged teaching practices, students learn skills such as leadership,
civic-mindedness, critical thinking, and communication.
