Bio:

       Todd Anderson’s teaching and research focusses on the movement and analysis of chemical contaminants (pollutants) in the environment. The ultimate objective is to evaluate and better characterize potential exposure of organisms to contaminants. An important set of supporting experiments involve specifically testing for the effects of selected chemicals, mostly using invertebrate models.  He received his M.S. and Ph.D. from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville under the direction of Dr. Barbara Walton at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL); he did postdoctoral research in pesticide toxicology and fate at Iowa State University with Dr. Joel Coats.  In 1996, Anderson received the Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry (SETAC) Roy F. Weston Award, an award given to a scientist under the age of 35 for contributions made to the field of environmental chemistry.  Dr. Anderson was selected by Sigma Xi as the Southwest Regional Young Investigator for 1999 and 2001 based on his work with chemical contaminants in soil-plant systems.

 

      At Texas Tech, Anderson has received the President’s Excellence in Teaching Award (2003), the Chancellor’s Council Distinguished Research Award (2004), was named an Integrated Scholar (2014) by the Provost, and in 2018 received the Barnie E. Rushing, Jr., Faculty Distinguished Research Award.  In addition, he has received his department’s Outstanding Faculty Award (by graduate student vote) 10 times.  In 2005, he was elected Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), the world’s largest general scientific society. In 2022, Anderson was elected Fellow of SETAC. In 2009 and again in 2020, he received the Champion of Women Award for mentoring women scientists from the West Texas - Association for Women in STEAM.

 

       He was an associate editor for Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry from 2002-2015, as well as a past member of the editorial board.  He is a current academic editor in environmental science for PeerJ.  Dr. Anderson is a Board Certified Environmental Scientist (BCES), by eminence, from the American Academy of Environmental Engineers & Scientists (AAEES).  His collaborative research on the natural occurrence of perchlorate received an editor’s award from Environmental Science & Technology as the Environmental Science Paper of the Year (2005), and was selected as the SERDP Environmental Restoration Research Project of the Year (2007).

 

       In 2021, Anderson was listed (for career contributions) in the top 2% of the world’s nearly 7 million working scientists. Some additional measures of the influence and impact of Anderson’s research can be found in citation metrics using Google Scholar data. Four of his 215 peer-reviewed journal articles have been cited over 800 times; more than 40 of his articles have been cited over 100 times each. He has an h-Index of 65 with > 20,000 total citations.
