I am a Professor of Ecotoxicology and Aquatic Animal Health in the Department of Forestry and Natural Resources at Purdue University. My research focuses on studying the impacts of pollutants on aquatic organisms. My laboratory also studies the mechanisms by which contaminants exert their effects. I have worked with different aquatic organisms including marine mammals, wading birds, fish, turtles, alligators, frogs and aquatic insects. I am currently mentoring 3 PhD, 2 MS and 2 undergraduate students.
