Research Interests
I have been involved in long-term monitoring of marine macrobenthic communities and their responses to anthropogenic stressors, including contamination. I conducted field work from 2004 to 2015 at McMurdo Station (11 deployments) and Palmer Station (1 deployment). I have been working up macrobenthic community samples, tissue samples (bioaccumulation) and sediment contamination samples, and conducting data analyses since then.
