Expert Qualifications

This highly-qualified expert has her Masters, PhD and postdoctoral training in the area of environmental toxicology. She continues to work in this area, focusing primarily on the long term effects following exposures to halogenated hydrocarbons. In addition, her research activities involve the study of drug metabolism and nuclear hormone receptors. Her teaching activities (to dental, medical, graduate and undergraduate students), encompass the disciplines of toxicology and pharmacology. The focus here is understanding how exposures to certain chemicals (drugs or toxicants) elicit specific effects resulting in either therapeutic benefit or damage to certain tissues and how that impacts overall health.
