Current and Recent Research Projects

Under the supervision of Dr. Liber, I am doing a PhD project focused on the construction of models to better understand how environmental modifying factors representative of oil sand process-water alter the toxicity of vanadium to model-aquatic organisms. Since it is not fully understood yet, I am also interested in elucidating the mechanism of action of vanadium to better understand its toxicity. This project will help to develop site specific guidelines applicable to the Oil Sand region (Alberta) and other regions of Canada, improve risk assessment and even land reclamation. Previously, I got my master’s degree at Wilfrid Laurier University under Dr. MacLatchy supervision, understanding the modifying effects of temperature and salinity on the toxicity of ethynilestradiol (EE2) on mummichog steroidogenesis. My undergraduate program was focused on limnology (University of Buenos Aires).
