He holds a BS in mathematics from the University of Sussex in England, a BS in Computer Science from Bloomsburg University and a PhD in statistics from the University of London, England, which he received in 1977. He held faculty positions at Marburg University in Germany, University of Kentucky, California State University Chico, and Allameh University in Iran before joining Bloomsburg University in 1987. Dr. Razzaghi is the recipient of the Faculty Recognition Award (2003) and the Outstanding Scholarship Award (2012) from Bloomsburg University. During the 2014-2015 academic year, he was a Fulbright fellow at the University Warsaw in Poland.   He has collaborated extensively with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as a Fellow of the National Center for Toxicological Research (NCTR) and Oak Ridge Institute of Science and Engineering (ORISE). In his role, he assisted in the mathematical development of dose-response models and statistical risk assessment procedures in animal bioassay experiments. He further studied methods for extrapolation of the procedures for human exposure to toxic chemicals in the environment. Dr. Razzaghi has also served as a consultant with the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) where he was a member of the peer review panel on the effects of perchlorate environmental contamination. Further, Dr. Razzaghi has consulted with the National Institutes for Health (NIH) and Geisinger Medical Center.
