Research Interests

I am primarily interested in studying the effects of environmental factors (contaminants exposure, circadian disruption) and hormonal influences (hypothyroidism) on cognitive functioning and neurotransmission using neurobehavioral, pharmacologic, and molecular methods. Other areas of interest include comparative neurotoxicology, clinical veterinary toxicology, communication of scientific information to the public, and ethics in science.
