Many environmental impacts occur because of pulse-exposure to contaminants including pesticides, oil spills and toxic industrial chemicals. The deterioration of the environment over the past century makes the discovery of quick, inexpensive sensors of such contaminant exposure very important. In addition, knowledge of the impacts of such pulse-exposures to aquatic organisms is limited.

Our research program addresses the lack of knowledge regarding contaminant pulse-exposures in 2 ways. Firstly, comprehensive laboratory studies will investigate contaminant pulse-exposure impacts on the survival, growth and reproduction of aquatic organisms under a variety of environmental conditions and life-stages. Secondly, development of better ways of detecting pulse-exposure and effects using rapid biomarkers at the individual and molecular levels will provide environmental managers with a better set of tools for mitigating such impacts.
