Primary Responsibilities/Activities:
The majority of my research involves developing and validating new analytical methods for fisheries management chemicals and drugs.  The methods are used to conduct further research, provide data to the Center for Veterinary Medicine (FDA) or the Environmental Protection Agency, or used by fisheries and aquatic resource managers when conducting field treatments to control diseases or invasive species.  Non research responsibilities include overseeing UMESC’s well water (Safe Drinking Water Act) and wastewater (NPDES permit).
