Our Mission

We seek to understand the fate and effects of chemicals in the aquatic environment to inform sound public policy decisions—a mission motivated by a respect for nature and a desire to conserve biodiversity on Earth. We are an interdisciplinary team of biologists, chemists, and engineers working collaboratively to investigate not only the causes and impacts, but also the solutions, to aquatic pollution. By conducting large-scale field experiments, we answer policy-relevant questions on a broad range of emerging contaminants in freshwater ecosystems.
