Organisation or Individual Expertise:
My research interests are focused on the biological effects of individual and mixtures of contaminants on aquatic species that reside in the marine and estuarine environment. My research is mainly concerned with the study of toxic effects, caused by natural or synthetic pollutants to the constituents of ecosystems. I am also interested in untangling natural and anthropogenic effects on these I am most interested in the effects of these pollutants throughout a wide range of biological organization. I am also interested in environmental analysis and fate of chemicals in the environment from a regulatory point of view.
