Current Research Interests

  • Molecular and biochemical effects of endocrine disrupting pharmaceuticals and contaminants in fish
  • Detecting in vivo distribution of single-walled carbon nanotubes in fish
  • Determining how binding of nutrients and contaminants to carbon based nano-materials may influence their toxicity
  • Fish behavior as an ecologically relevant indicator of low-level toxicity
