Personal profile

PhD Project

My research investigates the possible long term impacts of chemical contaminants on marine invertebrates. I have worked as a research assistant for the past four years in ecotoxicology, using gene expression profiling, histology and behavioural studies on model organisms to determine the ecotoxicological effects of various contaminants.

The key aims are:

1) Use of genetic and epigenetic mechanisms to test the hypothesis that transgenerational effects may lead to long term chronic effects that may impact population-level stability.

2) Effects compared by spawning exposed adults during gametogenesis as well as transgenerational effects from spawning after a complete cycle of gametogenesis.

3) Analysis of reproductive success, growth, behaviour, and development to test the hypothesis that genetic and/or epigenetic effects have impacts on higher levels of biological organisation.
