Dr. Beseler’s research has primarily focused on the association of pesticide exposure on mental health in farmers and risk factors for substance use disorders. She has worked on various projects in environmental and public health epidemiology, including a large air-manganese study and the impacts of exposure to gun violence in youth. She has extensive experience in evaluation and has conducted research on increasing diversity in STEM.
