Studying the effects of environmental pollution on amphibians and reptiles is my broad research interest. I look at pollution impacts at the individual, population and community level. Over the years I have investigated the effects of a crude oil spill on snapping turtle development and physiology, road deicer effects on amphibians in freshwater pond ecosystems and more recently my research has included large-scale use of agricultural pesticides. Currently my research explores the accumulation of pesticides in terrestrial amphibians through contact with the skin.
