About Andy Kane

My research program focuses on environmental and public health issues involving the human interface with aquatic and marine systems. Transdisciplinary collaboration and a community-based approach facilitate examination contaminant and water quality stressors on biota and host/pathogen interactions. Recent efforts have focused on behavioral toxicology, seafood safety in the Gulf of Mexico following DWH, oyster resource restoration and community-based science in Gulf coast communities, and health and safety of Gulf seafood workers. Additional interests include coastal oyster and clam aquaculture, water conservation and reuse, environmental reservoirs of non-tuberculous mycobacteria, teaching and scientific communication.
