Research Interests
1. Evolution of the cytochrome P450 (CYP) superfamily in animals, including evolution of major biochemical pathways 2. Function of the genomic complement of CYP enzymes in aquatic species and determination of the chemical space occupied by various CYP subfamilies. 3. Biological production of reactive oxygen species (ROS; includes superoxide, hydrogen peroxide, and hydroxyl radical) and effects of oxidative stress
