Area of interest

Marine aquatic ecologist and ecotoxicologist, with the main research interest in studying the effects of pesticides on the estuarine aquatic environment at different levels of biological organization, from sub-cellular (mitochondria toxicity assessment), cellular (citotoxicity), through individual organisms (short-term tests) to communities (species-sensitive distribution methodology). Also, research and development activitites related to alternative tests (cell-based assays) in ecotoxicology.
