B.A. in Biology and Chemistry from Monmouth College
M.S. and Ph.D. in Zoology from Southern Illinois University Carbondale
My career at Alma began in
I'm an expert in
My major research areas are the toxicity and bioavailability of pesticides, legacy pollutants, and road salts.I am also an expert in the using mayflies for toxicity and bioaccumulation testing. While most of my work is on macroinvertebrates, I also have a strong interest in the role of pollution on public health.
