Primary Interests

My research is highly interdisciplinary and has its theoretical basis in Bayesian mathematical modeling, contaminant biology, environmental toxicology, and environmental governance. Specifically, my interests are focused on three principle themes (a) How do contaminants affect organisms, including humans, (b) How can contaminants in ecosystem compartments be modeled using Bayesian statistics and information theory, and (c) How can this information be used in a scientific translation and environmental governance context. I primarily work with real data sets that tend to be large in nature and that consider broad spatial and temporal scales. Additionally, since 2010 I have served as the North American Chairperson for the Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry Global Mercury Working Group which is an official member of the United Nations Environment Programme’s Global Mercury Partnership.
