My research focuses primarily on the effects of naturally occurring marine seafood toxins on wildlife and human health. My studies encompass four main topics: 1) pathways of trophic transfer of algal toxins through marine foodwebs, 2) assessment of acute and chronic exposure risks, 3) identification of physiological health impacts related to low level chronic exposure, and 4) development of biomarkers of chronic exposure and disease.
