Curl founded and directs Boise State’s Agricultural Health Lab. Current projects in her lab include a randomized intervention to assess the effect of an organic diet on pesticide exposure during pregnancy; an investigation into crop uptake of inorganic bromide following field fumigation with methyl bromide; and a collaboration with the Washington and Idaho Potato Commissions to improve worker health and safety during Northwest potato production.
Throughout her academic training, Curl has earned several honors and awards, including the prestigious Science to Achieve Results (STAR) Fellowship from the Environmental Protection Agency, which supported her doctoral research, and the Magnuson Scholar Award, awarded each year to the top student in each of the Health Sciences Schools at the University of Washington. She was recently named one of the 20 Pioneers in Environmental Public Health by the Collaborative on Health & Environment, and was a co-author on a Lancet article named Best Paper of 2016 by the International Society for Environmental Epidemiology.
