About Me

My research expertise are in the areas of ecotoxicology, chemistry and water quality, with specific focus on the management, design and implementation of aquatic monitoring programs and environmental risk assessment studies. My research seeks to understand risk to the environment from natural and man-made source pollutants. My research so far in this area has encompassed physical and chemical impacts of pollutants from urban, industrial, agricultural and geological sources.
