Research InterestsResearch Interests: Crustacean reproduction and development, environmental endocrine disruption.

Interests include the hormones and organs responsible for onset and production of the major yolk protein, vitellin, in arthropods and especially decapod crustaceans. I have developed several sensitive assays involving these processes that may prove useful in the determination of detrimental effects upon non-target populations from exposure to heavy metals, PCB’s or insecticides.
