Research Interests

My interests include science education that takes place outside of the classroom, especially with rural and agricultural communities on topics related to pesticides and environmental toxicology. I study effective teaching and communication practices in non-traditional learning settings, and I am particularly interested in the practices of community health workers who engage farmworkers. A current focus of my work is increasing these community health workers’ access to health information and piloting technology to enhance farmworker education in combination with professional development opportunities for community health workers. I am also co-leading a research-to-practice project involving an examination of farmworkers’ pesticide risk beliefs and protective behaviors in the field and the development of an intervention with community health workers to reduce farmworker exposure to pesticides.
