Edward Kasner is a Senior Fellow at the University of Washington. His research has primarily focused on farmworker exposure to pesticides. In 2010, he earned an MPH from the University of Minnesota after conducting a pesticide exposure assessment for 50 farmers in a Chinese village. He completed a two-year fellowship at the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health in the SENSOR-Pesticides epidemiological surveillance program. In 2012, he joined the Pacific Northwest Agricultural Safety and Health Center, where his research seeks to understand the role of wind in pesticide drift events involving agricultural workers, evaluate drift reduction engineering controls by measuring potential worker exposure, and identify precision farming tools that can prevent and reduce drift exposure. In 2017, he earned a PhD from the University of Washington in the Department of Environmental & Occupational Health Sciences.
