My research interests are in the general area of environmental toxicology with emphasis on the influence of physical factors on contaminant transfer from sediment into aquaticfoodchains. I am also interested in factors which affect trophic transfer and in relating tissue levels of contaminants with the myriad of biological effects that they produce. Although not an insect, alien species such as the zebra mussel, has become a focus of my research with emphasis on control methods as well as their role in contaminant cycling. When not busy in the laboratory, I enjoy sharing my living space with four children and a large number of long-eared equines.
