Dr Alice Baynes
Department of Life Sciences, Brunel University London
My general background is in marine and freshwater biology, prior to working at Brunel University I worked at the Environment Agency (National Fisheries Laboratory) in fisheries management especially fish disease and parasitology; including invasive species. My main interests are in sub-lethal effects (developmental, reproductive and immune) of environmental contaminants in aquatic species (mainly molluscs and fish) and developing gastropod molluscs as models in eco-toxicology and comparative biology. I’ve also been working on projects using in vitro and in vivo approaches to test the efficacy of new wastewater treatment technologies to reduce aquatic pollution.
