Research program involves four main lines of investigation:
1) Monitoring microplastics pollution in the aquatic environment
2) Outdoor aquatic mesocosms studies with nanoparticles and microplastics exposure
3) Benthic aquatic macroinvertebrates community toxicology.
4) Chironomids (Chironomus) and fruit fly (Drosophila) as bioindicators of nanoparticles/microplastics exposure.
Past interests include effects of nanoparticles on fish disease resistance and immunotoxicology.
