Dr. Sepúlveda’s main area of research is ecotoxicology. Over the last 20 years, she has conducted extensive research evaluating the sublethal effects of a wide-range of contaminants on numerous aquatic species. Specifically, Dr. Sepúlveda’s research has focused on understanding the effects of pollutants on reproduction and early life-stage development. Besides examining whole animal and tissue-level responses to environmental contaminants, Dr. Sepúlveda also investigates the effects of chemicals at the sub-cellular and molecular levels.
