About me

Adverse biological effects of environmental pollutants, primarily on animals. Current research is focused mainly on thiamine deficiency in wildlife, such as birds, fish, mammals, and invertebrates. Specific qualifications include histology, histopathology, histochemistry, cytochemistry, data management, statistical analysis, and scientific writing.
