Degree Earned: Doctoral, Spring 2018
Joined CREST CAChE in Spring 2017
My research involved the development and application of aquatic toxicity studies for the assessment of impacts due to chemical stressors using non-standard indigenous organisms. This includes the methodology behind the acquisition of native organisms, culturing/maintenance protocols, developing testing methods, determining applicable toxicological endpoints for assessing adverse effects, the variability and reproducibility of the studies, and probabilistic risk assessment to put the organisms' sensitivity to the toxicant and potential risk in perspective.
