Research emphasis: Using proteomics as a tool for biomarker discovery and to study regulatory pathways in marine organisms
Current and planned research projects:
- proteomic approaches to understanding biogenic sulfur production in sea-ice diatoms
- identifying plasma biomarkers of domoic acid toxicosis in California sea lions
- identifying ice-binding proteins from psycrophilic algae
- discovery of urine biomarkers in patients with glomerular disease
