Area(s) of Expertise
I am a veterinarian with a PhD in toxicology and a clinical specialty in zoological medicine. I study health issues of a very wide range of species, applying ecological concepts to health management for animals as diverse as small invertebrates to large pachyderms and whales. My research uses advanced analytical techniques in metabolomics and genomics to look at the impact of environmental conditions on animals, and mathematical modeling tools to predict the impact of these changes at larger scales. My work helps inform us about species susceptibility to impacts of climate change.
