Professional Interests
Limnology, Ecology, Environmental Toxicology, and Environmental Genomics

Current Projects
Our current research projects focus on identifying the mechanisms associated with susceptibility in natural aquatic populations. To achieve this endeavor we incorporate ecology, ecotoxicology, molecular, and genomic tools.
