Research Interest:
With a heavy background in analytical chemistry training, I am looking to develop biological techniques during my early graduate career that will improve my versatility in the laboratory. With these diverse ranges of techniques, I will provide a unique approach to my specific area of environmental health research. Specifically, I am interested in the effect of environmental contaminants on the immune system development in reptilian species such as the Crocodile and American Alligator. Currently, I am measuring the levels of trace metals in adult Crocodiles indigenous to South Africa and will be measuring organics levels in the future. I hope to take it further and later characterize the effect of these contaminants singly and possibly as a matrix on the development of the immune system.
