Dr. Alesia Ferguson is currently affiliated to Associate Professor, Department of Environmental and Occupational Health, continuing research in the specialized scientific area of human skin. Dr. Alesia Ferguson has authored several articles.
Dr. Ferguson’s earlier and continued focus of my research work has been in understanding the structure of the human skin and in mathematically defining mass transfer across the skin barrier for dermal dose using a developed two-layer, time-varying, numerical model and other previously developed simpler analytical dermal uptake models. In addition, she has spent a significant amount of time developing methodologies for the collection of micro-level activity time series (MLATS) data for children, and more recently hair stylists, using video-taping and video translation techniques and assessing the relationship between contact frequency and duration with chemical mass loading on skin surface. She has also spent the last few years conducting skin-adherence studies with soil and clay using a computer controlled adherence chamber. Dr. Ferguson has also been the principal Investigator on four Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) outreach and education grants to address lead poisoning and various healthy home issues (i.e., chemical use reduction, integrated pest management, radon, mold). She currently works with multiple state agencies and local partners across Arkansas. In general, her work is multidisciplinary in the human risk assessment field (particularly dermal exposure) encompassing biology, toxicology, engineering, chemistry and the behavioral sciences.
