I'm excited to announce that not one, but two publications I was a part of while working at the Southern California Coastal Water Research Project were recently published! The first manuscript develops prioritization tools for the management of California watersheds using StreamCat, environmental justice, and bioassessment datasets and presents their application at a number of pilot sites throughout the state. The second manuscript presents a newly developed interactive database - the Toxicity of Microplastics Explorer (ToMEx) - for helping synthesize the recent explosion in microplastics toxicity data. Both the aquatic organism and human health effect versions of the dashboard are live and publicly available!
I am a Postdoctoral Scholar in the Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Science at the University of Nevada Reno.
