Research Interest:

The mechanisms by which environmental factors influence the evolution, development and functioning of the reproduction system in vertebrates, including humans, is the focus of my group's research. Specifically, we work in three main areas:

  1. The influence of contaminants on the developmental genetics and reproductive biology of wildlife and humans,
  2. Endangered species reproductive biology and
  3. The evolution of maternal-fetal chemical communication.
