EPA Taps Researcher for Herbicide Health Study
News Center at UT Dallas

Dr. Daniel Griffith, professor of geospatial analysis at UT Dallas’ School of Economic, Political and Policy Sciences, has been selected by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to aid a review of the health effects of atrazine, a herbicide used extensively in farming. 
 
Griffith, an Ashbel Smith Professor, is one of 19 scientists asked to serve on the Food Quality Protection Act Science Review Board.  The board assists in reviews conducted by the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act Scientific Advisory Panel (FIFRA SAP).
 
“I was surprised,” Griffith said of his selection.  “I had done some work with the EPA in the early ’90s through its environmental monitoring and assessment program. … I think it’s a real honor, and it also gives me an opportunity to contribute to the country in a scientific way. I think it gives me something that I‘ll feel satisfied about because I’m making a useful contribution.” 

UT Dallas Expert to Edit Leading Geospatial Journal
UT Dallas News Center

The editorship of the top journal in spatial analysis and modeling, Geographical Analysis, is moving to UT Dallas. Beginning July 1, Dr. Daniel Griffith will serve a three-year term as the journal’s editor.  Griffith is an Ashbel Smith Professor of Geospatial Information Sciences in the School of Economic, Political and Policy Sciences.  He will be the first editor in 18 years who is not based at Ohio State University.

Griffith was chosen because of his reputation in the area of geospatial analysis, and his appointment is a reflection of the growing strength of UT Dallas’ Geospatial Information Sciences program.
 
UT Dallas GIS Professor Michael Tiefelsdorf will be one of the 32 international scholars on the journal’s editorial board.  New clinical assistant GIS professor Yongwan Chun will be Griffith’s editorial assistant.
