My current research involves the development of innovative aquatic toxicity testing methods which use native aquatic organisms to assess the impacts of chemical stressors to an environment. The majority of my work is focused around the Natural Resource Damage Assessment of the Deep Water Horizon Incident. Using a variety of native organisms allows for a more complete understanding of the impacts of a chemical in a specific ecosystem. I’m also investigating the use of an estuarine anemone to study the impacts of toxicants, metals in particular, in estuarine ecosystems. Contact: abraham.smith@fiu.edu
