Current and Recent Research Projects

Characterizing the risk of triclosan and triclocarban to plants grown in biosolids-amended soil. Specifically, quantifying bioaccumulation and adverse effects in a variety of crop species. Determining whether these two compounds affect the relationship between plants and arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi.
