About

My current research focuses on the study of the toxic effects of environmental stressors (e.g. pollutants) on invertebrates, by analysing cellular / physiological / developmental / reproductive parameters, detoxication pathways, and the transcriptional activity of genes involved in endocrine signalling, cell stress response, cell metabolism, ribosome biogenesis, and DNA damage / repair.
