Academic Interests

My main research areas are in toxicology, aquatic ecotoxicology, in vitro toxicology and marine ecology. In toxicology and in vitro toxicology specifically oriented towards oxidative stress and mechanisms for DNA damage, in ecotoxicology and marine ecology a wide range of topics, including environmental interactions, sediment processes, biomarker development and the use of effects in monitoring programmes.
