Research Interests:
My lab has been using ecological and histological methods to investigate the effects of environmental changes related to climate change on life histories and morphology of the commonly used model organism, Daphnia.  We have focused specifically on the effects of increased levels of ultraviolet radiation alone and in conjunction with increases in temperature in a laboratory setting.  Since severe weather events are often associated with climate change, we have also looked at increased turbidity.  More recently, we have examined host (Daphnia)-parasite (Pasteuria) interactions in relation to environmental change and are beginning work on the effects of photosensitive endocrine disruptors.
