My research interests involve developing tools to better assess human exposure risks to PFAS with research results that will ultimately have an impact on influencing and informing policy. Research under this includes further investigating the fate and transport of PFAS in the aquatic environment, as well as trying to better understand the factors that affect bioavailability of different PFAS and their bioaccumulation and trophic transfer in aquatic organisms consumed by humans.
