Education:
1988 B.S., Microbiology, University of Wisconsin - La Crosse 

Primary Responsibilities/Activities:
My research efforts focus on the development of analytical methods for analysis of residues of fishery chemicals.  This work is conducted according to guidelines set by Good Laboratory Practices.  I also assist with target animal safety and efficacy studies to generate data to complete registration requirements for aquaculture drugs.  We have evaluated the affects of pharmaceuticals and personal care products on the aquatic environment. I conduct toxicity studies with fish and mussels and we are evaluating toxicants to control aquatic invasive species. My prior research at the lab involved the development of a replacement fungicide for malachite green for use on cultured fish and fish eggs.
