I have published approximately 200 scientific publications, mostly in high quality international scientific journals including Science (IF=37), Environmental Science and Technology (IF=6.2), Science of the Total Environment (IF=4.9) and Water Research (IF=7.1). I have provided approximately 300 invited presentations at scientific, regulatory and public meetings. I have been a member of the Science Advisory Board of the USEPA, Director of the Science Advisory Board for Contaminated Sites in British Columbia and served for 6 years as a Member of the UN Joint Group of Experts on the Scientific Aspects of Marine Environmental Protection (GESAMP), which is the scientific advisory body of the IMO, FAO, UNESCO, IOC, WMO, WHO ,IAEA, UN and UNEP on the global marine environment & protection. I have provided expert advice to Environment Canada (related to CEPA) , Fisheries and Oceans Canada (related to SARA and the recovery of the Southern Resident Killer whale population), the European Chemical Agency (related to REACh legislation), the US-EPA (regarding water quality criteria and pesticide use), the International Council of Chemical Association (regarding chemical evaluation and risk assessment), the European Chemical Industry Council (regarding research priorities), the Japanese EPA (re. bioaccumulation criteria) and several Natural Resource Damage Assessments in the US, including the Hudson River, the Housatonic River and San Francisco Bay (for 21 years). I have been an editorial board member of 4 scientific journals and the editor of the Bioaccumulation section of SETAC Globe. I have organized many workshops, conferences and sessions at conferences. My research has attracted approximately 6.7 million dollars (only funding to my group) in research funding from a variety of sources including NSERC, various industry associations and government agencies in Canada, the US, the EU and local communities. My reputation is based on developing productive science-focused collaborations with government, industry, academia and community groups. My students are highly sought after and many have excelled becoming tenured professors (e.g. at Harvard, University of Toronto, University of Singapore) and served in key government, NGO and industry positions.



Collegial Leadership & Engagement 

I have been an active member of SFU’s Master in Environmental Toxicology program and Biological Sciences, taking on the senior supervision of 19 graduate students on top of my student load in REM. In 2011, I founded with the help of students in the MET and REM programs a student-led annual workshop ToxTalks to engage the student community and provide opportunities for the exchange of ideas. I served 3 terms as Director of REM and in many other roles in REM and SFU. Within the Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry, I have taken on a variety of roles including the organization of the annual meeting, the organization of many sessions on a variety of topics over the years, offering short courses, the editorship of the Bioaccumulation section of SETAC Globe, Director of the Bioaccumulation Science Advisory Group, student mentor, judge of presentations.
