He is the co-editor-in chief of Aquatic Toxicology and serves on the editorial boards of Toxicological Sciences, Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry, The Asian Journal of Ecotoxicology and Marine Environmental Research. He has co-edited a 2 volume series entitled "Target Organ Toxicity in Marine and Freshwater Teleosts" and has published more than 115 peer reviewed journal articles. His research interests revolve around the fate and effects of pesticides in aquatic organisms. In particular, his laboratory has focused on the impacts of hypersaline water on the biotransformation and enantioselective toxicity of endocrine-modulating pesticides to aquatic organisms.
