My research interests revolve around understanding the biological effects of pollution and contaminants in aquatic organisms, particularly native fish species. I am interested in bioaccumulation and the sub-lethal and long-term effects of environmental stressors and pollutants on fish reproduction and early development. In my current role at RMIT University my work aims to identify pollution sources and describe the impacts on biota from freshwater rivers and wetlands, estuaries and marine ecosystems. This includes extensive water and sediment monitoring of micropollutants and emerging contaminants associated with stormwater, sewage and recycled water. I currently hold the position of President within the Australasian Chapter of the Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry (SETAC AU). SETAC is a global organisation of around 5000 members from more than 90 countries dedicated to maintaining environmental quality through science. The SETAC AU Regional Chapter comprises around 300 members from government, academia and industry across Australia, New Zealand and Papua New Guinea.
