Research Interests

Principally through laboratory and desk based studies, I investigate the effect of the magnitude and duration of exposure on the accumulation and toxicological consequences (both biochemical and physiological) of contaminants in mammals and birds. Interspecies differences in these processes are also studied as an intrinsic function of toxicity. My main role within CEH is as the coordinator for the Predatory Bird Monitoring Scheme. As part of this role I liaise with members of the public who contribute to the scheme, manage the scheme on a day-to-day basis, and also disseminate the results of the scheme through oral presentations, reports and refereed-papers. I am also the Project Manager for NanoFASE, an EU Horizon 2020 project investigating the fate of Engineered Nanoparticles (ENPs) in the environment.
