  • Aquatic Epidemiology and food safety

  • Ecotoxicology

  • Wildlife toxicology

  • Global public Health

  • Biochemical & molecular toxicology (Biomarkers)

  • Simulation models of environmental fates of contaminants

Research Focus: In an increasingly interdependent World population, my research is focused on aquatic and wildlife epidemiology, toxicology, food safety and global public health.  I have developed and validated assays for invivo evaluation of genes as biomarkers of environmental pollution and contamination. I have also developed and applied both analytical and bio-analytical techniques to environmental and public health issues; Including research into the interplay of ecotoxicology with aquatic and wildlife borne emerging and re-emerging infectious diseases and the implications for global public health and environmental justice within community-based research framework. I have therefore been developing and validating epidemiological procedures for diseases at the wildlife-livestock-human interface and of regulatory and public health importance.
