My research program focuses on environmental and public health issues involving the human interface with aquatic and marine systems. Transdisciplinary collaboration and a community-based approach facilitate examination contaminant and water quality stressors on biota and host/pathogen interactions. Recent efforts have focused on behavioral toxicology, seafood safety in the Gulf of Mexico following DWH, oyster resource restoration and community-based science in Gulf coast communities, and health and safety of Gulf seafood workers. Additional interests include coastal oyster and clam aquaculture, water conservation and reuse, environmental reservoirs of non-tuberculous mycobacteria, teaching and scientific communication.

Dr. Andy Kane, Makyba Charles and his team collected seafood consumption data from “coastal, high-end consumers of Gulf seafood,” using a survey instrument that is detailed in the below validation study. This paper is part of a series of manuscripts that covers the risk assessment of Gulf seafood after the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. Click here to read more.
