As an ecotoxicologist, my research integrates the responses of aquatic organisms to endocrine disrupting compounds (EDCs) and other environmental stressors, such as microplastics, across the biological hierarchy. My group focuses on discerning mechanisms of toxicity and linking the results of laboratory experiments to ecosystem responses. Current work examines the impact of EDCs on gene expression, development, reproductive behavior, sex ratio and population dynamics across multiple generations, with an emphasis on exposure during early life. Specific compounds of concern include endocrine active pesticides and pharmaceuticals.
