RESEARCH INTEREST

Research in my lab involves the development and calibration of pollutant bioaccumulation models for a variety of indicator species including invertebrates, fish, amphibians and birds. These models are being applied to assess water and sediment quality of the Great Lakes, perform ecological hazard and risk assessments and as research tools to determine how contaminant distributions are influenced by carbon production dynamics and animal bioenergetics.
