Short Biography

I am an environmental organic chemist who has been working with the USGS since 2004. I have a BS in Chemistry from the University of Alabama in Huntsville (1999) and a MSPH in Environmental Health Science from the University of South Carolina (2003). My current research focuses on the occurrence, fate and effects of current-use pesticides and pesticide degradates in the environment.  I am a member of the Toxic Substances Hydrology Program's Pesticide Fate Research Team and co-lead for the Amphibian Research and Monitoring Initiative's Pesticide Project.

My USGS Science Strategy Areas

Understanding Ecosystems & Predicting Ecosystems Change

The Role of Environment and Wildlife in Human Health

Pesticides and Aquatic Organisms

As a co-lead on the Amphibian Research and Monitoring Intiative's Pesticide Project, I am interested in the fate and effects of current-use pesticides on amphibian populations.  My key research interest include:

Understanding the potential link between pesticides, other stressors and amphibian declines

Assessing the effectiveness of constructed wetlands as viable amphibian habitats

Assessing potential links between pesticides and diseases in amphibian populations
