Research Specialties

I study various aspects of the relationship between fish and their macroparasites and conduct research in environmental parasitology. Research projects that I am currently involved in include studying heavy metal accumulation in cestodes parasitizing fish from water bodies that vary in level of contaminants, examining histopathological changes in parasitized fish from polluted habitats, assessing the role of parasites in mate choice in fish, and studying the population biology of parasite assemblages of lacustrine fish.
