My research attempts to improve the economic and environmental sustainability of pork production in Ontario and Canada, to support a vibrant and diverse industry that employees many people, which ultimately provides high-quality, safe, and affordable pork for us to eat.
My lab combines measures of human behaviour with brain imaging techniques, such as functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI), to examine the cognitive and neural mechanisms of visual recognition and affective response, and how...
My research program focuses on molecular and genetic toxicology. We identify toxic and mutagenic chemicals (whether naturally occurring or synthetic) and study their mechanisms of action. We also study the human enzymes that metabolize xenobiotics (foreign chemicals).
My research focuses on the use and performance of on-site wastewater systems in the environment. With over 1 million systems in Ontario alone, knowing how they perform, how to improve their design and how to manage them properly is critical for us to properly protect human health and the environment.
