Research Interests and Activities
As a toxicologist and environmental analytical chemist, my research interests are to understand what environmental contaminants we are exposed to, how we become exposed, and the toxicological consequences. In particular, I am concerned with early-life exposures to persistent and bioaccumulative organic contaminants that may alter developmental trajectories of humans and wildlife.
This is an exciting time for this research due to the new tools we have available. We are building an Ultratrace Non-Target Laboratory (UNTARGET Lab) at Science for Life Laboratory (SciLifeLab) which will house (ultra)high resolution mass spectrometers for discovery of important new chemical contaminants in air, water and biofluids. The surrounding research environment at SciLifeLab specializes in genomics, epigenomics, proteomics, functional biology and bioimaging, creating many possibilities to investigate our questions using best-available biomolecular technologies.
