Interests include the impacts of pollution on the aquatic environment and their potential implications on human health. Closely related areas are aquatic toxicology and aquatic entomology. Specializing in aquatic ecology which includes design, collection, analyses and interpretation of data. Research interest are related to the impact of contaminants on the aquatic community; biogenic transport of sedimented contaminants into the water column; habitat and ecological assessment resulting from hazardous discharges; biomonitoring and aquatic toxicity bioassays utilizing both solid and suspended phase testing. Also, bacterial and algal interactions related to nutrient recycling.
