Couple carries research links to the limit

University of Cincinnati doctoral candidates Jeff and Camille Lodwick have a lot more in common than their last names. Both were in separate doctoral programs at UC, but shared related research and even a lab at one time. Then, they decided to share a lifetime together, and got married in 2001. They even share the same date when they will defend their research projects: Tuesday, July 22. Jeff will present his research in environmental and industrial hygiene at 10 a.m. in Room 121 of the Kettering Lab Complex at the UC Medical Center. Camille, a doctoral candidate in the College of Engineering, follows with her defense in which she used computer modeling to measure lead levels in human bone. She presents at 2 p.m. in Room 405 of the Engineering Research Center.

"Both Jeff and Camille are doing work that should be of high interest in the Tristate area," says their advisor Henry Spitz, professor of mechanical and industrial engineering and director of Graduate Studies. "Lead remains a common neurotoxin, and it can accumulate in bone. So, measuring and predicting exposure levels as accurately as possible are important advancements in protecting both workers and children from lead poisoning."

It was their research that brought them together, and evolved into a support system for two people attaining a very demanding goal. Jeff, a 32-year-old doctoral candidate in the Department of Environmental Health, College of Medicine, is originally from Carlisle, Ohio and earned his undergraduate degree in nuclear engineering from UC's College of Engineering. He then earned his UC master's degree in health physics from the Nuclear and Radiological Engineering Program, College of Engineering, before pursuing his doctoral studies in the Environmental Health Program.

Camille, 27, first joined the UC master's degree program in health physics and came here from Oregon, earning her bachelor's degree in radiation health physics from Oregon State University.
