Research Interests

Expertise: Impact of pollution (such as pharmaceutical compounds) on aquatic organisms

  • Effects of pharmaceutical compounds on growth, development, and reproduction of aquatic organisms.
  • Mixture modeling and assessing the potential of compounds for mixture effects.
  • Assessing the impact of complex environmental contaminants such as wastewater treatment plant and/or pulp and paper mill effluent.
