Developmental neurotoxicology, emphasizing behavioral assessment of brain function. Research utilizes mouse models (including transgenic mice) and non-human primates (rhesus monkeys). Interests include the influence of trace elements, both essential and toxic, on brain development with studies of iron, zinc, manganese, arsenic, and aluminum; risk assessment activities through and an appointment at the California Environmental Protection Agency.
