Scholarly Interests

My main research area is in wildlife toxicology. My laboratory conducts basic and applied research on the effects of contaminants on animal populations, with particular emphasis on birds. We conduct field and laboratory studies to determine the effects of persistent bioaccumulative toxicants, metals and other environmental pollutants on wildlife.
