Study evolutionary adaptation and physiological acclimation at the population level in Brown bullhead (Ameiurus nebulosus) fish inhabiting polluted and clean regions.
Use field expertise and molecular techniques to identify population level differences between clean and polluted site fish. Molecular techniques include: gene expression analysis using quantitative real-time PCR, protein expression analysis using western blotting and enzyme activity quantification using EROD and GST analysis.
Previous studies include: Explored biomarker CYP1A expression levels in a variety of fish species across western New York, Windsor, Ontario and Detroit, Michigan.
Conducted a fish biodiversity survey at Letchworth State in Castile, NY.
