Shanelle Kohler MSc.
I am a PhD researcher at the University of Portsmouth developing behavioural assays for fast and cost-effective assessment of the effects of anthropogenic pollution, namely pharmaceuticals, on crustaceans.

MY LATEST RESEARCH
My PhD is currently looking into the development of high-throughput behavioural assays that can be used in ecotoxicological testing as an 'early warning' system to environmental pollution, using crustaceans as a model species.
My MSc research project monitored temporal variations in internal and external parasites in an Amphipod host. Alterations in host behaviour as a result of parasite infection were also analysed.
