Profile

Ph.D. 1980 University of Wisconsin Department of Biochemistry. Post-doctoral Investigator, Michigan State University (1980-1982) and University of British Columbia (1982-1985).

I am current acting director for the Great Lakes Research Consortium, a network of eighteen New York Universities and nine Canadian affiliates looking at all aspects of Great Lakes science, policy and ecology. In addition, my own research interests are in biologically active natural products produced by algae. This includes toxins produced by dinoflagellates and cyanobacteria (blue-green algae) as well as allelopathic compounds and siderophores. For more information on my research interests and the students in my laboratory, look at the links below.
