The Brander lab’s research encompasses the fields of toxicology, endocrinology, and ecology; integrating molecular approaches with measurements at the organism and population level. Our main focus is on the effects of stressors such as emerging pollutants, plastics, and changing climate on aquatic organisms, but our work spans the links between ecological and human health.
Brander has been an Assistant Professor in the Oregon State University Department of Environmental and Molecular Toxicology since fall 2017. Brander retains an adjunct appointment at the University of North Carolina, Wilmington, where she was tenure-track faculty from 2013-2017.
Brander may be recruiting a graduate student for 2020, depending on funding.
