My research focuses on the fate and effects of contaminants in the environment. Specifically, I am interested in contaminants that migrate from various land uses into aquatic ecosystems and their effects on aquativ plants and animals. My laboratory studies contaminant effects on fish, aquatic invertebrates, plants and algae. Currently, we are studying the toxicity of metals and pesticides. In addition, we are collaborating with social scientists to develop strategies that facilitate the coexistence oc economically sound land use with good environmental quality.
