Research Interest:
Environmental toxicology and marine functional genomics.  Research focuses on examining altered gene expression in fish after exposure to contaminants such as chromium, arsenic, and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons.  We are interested in ascertaining what genes are being altered, what the resulting consequence or cost is to the organism, and whether these genes can be used as biomarker probes to assess exposure to other contaminants.  The current project is specifically examining environmentally realistic concentrations of arsenic to ascertain its mechanism of developmental toxicity.
