I am interested in understanding impacts of human-induced environmental change on wildlife

My research investigates effects of chemical contaminants, which can be widespread in ecosystems impacted by human activity, on traits and behaviours in wildlife. I currently use fish as a model system to test impacts of contaminants on traits with direct ecological and evolutionary significance, including processes of sexual selection (e.g. mate choice), antipredator behaviour, sociability, foraging, boldness, and activity.
