My research in molecular ecotoxicology and environmental epigenetics focuses on the genetic/epigenetic mechanisms that mediate environmental responses and determine an organism's capacity for recovery, acclimation, and adaptation. Given what we currently know about the role of post-translational modifications in DNA repair and the regulation of gene expression, I'm interested in how this applies to organism responses to environmental stressors.
