Claudia Erhart


PhD candidate

Job description

PhD candidate in Marine Ecotoxicology, interested in multigenerational exposure of fishes and molecular toxicology.  I study reproductive and developmental toxicity arising from parental exposure to petroleum compounds using Atlantic cod and polar cod.

    Research interests

    My research interest is in elucidating how environmental contaminants, such as crude oil related compounds, affect reproduction and development of fishes. I am investigating the effect of parental exposure to a crude oil water-soluble fraction on gamete quality and embryo development. Furthermore, I am interested in the impact of petroleum compounds on the regulation of the reproductive axis in the reproducing adult fish.
