Agricultural Safety and Health
My name is Matison Bentley and I am from Greenup, Kentucky. I hold a bachelor’s degree in Occupational Safety and Health and a master’s degree in Occupational Safety and Health with an emphasis in Industrial Hygiene, both from Murray State University. I am now at the University of Iowa where I am working towards a PhD in Agricultural Safety and Health. As I progress in the program I plan to narrow my research interests down, but for now I am interested in mental health, ergonomics, and pesticide exposure. Upon graduation, I plan on working in the field to gain experience to ultimately prepare me for a teaching position. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my dogs and horses, going to flea markets, and exploring new places!
