Research Focus
Director of the Aquatic Health Program (http://www.vet. ucdavis.edu/aquztic health/index.cmf). My goal is to develop an aquatic ecotoxicology and endocrine disrupting chemicals screening program within the School of Veterinary Medicine. The Aquatic Toxicology Laboratory is state certified with greater than 20 years of experience investigating water quality and its impacts on the health of organisms. The Aquatic Health Program strives to promote and protect the well-being of all aquatic species and their environments by investigating the behavioral, anatomical, and physiological components of individual organisms and applying them to the ecosystem scale. Ultimately, using fish model to screen contaminants in drinking water of disadvantaged comminity to protect human health.
