Currently my work focusses on toxics issues in the Columbia River Basin. I work closely with NOAA Fisheries, EPA, the Lower Columbia River Estuary Partnership, Columbia Riverkeeper, and others in evaluating water-quality conditions in the basin and working towards a healthier environment for us all.
