Research in our lab centres around the broad areas of Ecotoxicology and Integrated Water Resources Management. Currently, our research activities are evaluating the exposure and effects of emerging contaminants (e.g. endocrine disrupters, pharmaceuticals) in the environment arising from municipal, industrial and agricultural activities. Our emphasis includes the development and application of new tools and approaches for risk assessment that supports the implementation of risk management and remedial actions. Research also includes development and testing of novel technologies for water treatment. Our long term goals are aimed at supporting cumulative effects assessment (and management) that considers natural variability at the watershed scale.

During the COVID-19 pandemic our team pivoted our research to support Public Health Units by conducting wastewater surveillance of SARS-CoV-2 (see COVID-19 Research)
