Research Interests

Our lab uses zebrafish as a model to understand mechanisms of chemical insult during development. We use various strategies such as high-content screening, multi-omics approaches, reverse genetics to discover and study regulatory roles of specific gene products and pathways that drive short- and long-term adverse effects from developmental exposures.

Courses Taught

BIOL 4930- Developmental Health and Toxicology
Biol 4400- Animal Developmental Biology
