Professional Interests

Dr. Martinović-Weigelt’s research interests include: 1) Characterization of proximate mechanisms that underlie behavior and reproduction in fish, 2) Assessment of effects of environmental stressors and contaminants (e.g., hypoxia, chemicals of emerging concern) to inform adverse outcome pathway development, 3) Optimization and development of approaches for bioeffects-based monitoring (using high-content and high-throughput approaches).

Dr. Martinović-Weigelt has co-authored circa 50 research manuscripts that assess occurrence and the effects of chemicals of emerging concern and other stressors on fish and aquatic ecosystems, and is a recipient of research funding from a variety of state and federal agencies including U.S. Environmental Pollution Agency, U.S. Geological Survey, National Science Foundation, Minnesota Pollution Control Agency and Minnesota Environment and Natural Resources Trust Fund.
