Research Interests

  • My research focuses on how environmental toxicants may influence physiological events associated with the female reproductive tract, primarily during the early stages of pregnancy.  I am interested is discerning the oxidative capacity inherent within the mammalian oviduct epithelium and how function is impacted with chemical challenges.
