Dr. Maria S. (Marisol) Sepúlveda is Professor of Ecotoxicology and Aquatic Animal Health. She earned a Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine degree from Universidad de Chile, Santiago, Chile; her MS from University of Florida, Gainesville, Florida (Wildlife Ecology); and her PhD from the same University (Veterinary Sciences/Toxicology). Dr. Sepúlveda’s main area of research is ecotoxicology. Over the last 20 years, she has conducted extensive research evaluating the sublethal effects of a wide-range of contaminants on numerous aquatic species. Specifically, Dr. Sepúlveda’s research has focused on understanding the effects of pollutants on reproduction and early life-stage development. Besides examining whole animal and tissue-level responses to environmental contaminants, Dr. Sepúlveda also investigates the effects of chemicals at the sub-cellular and molecular levels. She has published over 145 refereed publications, authored 9 books chapters, and presented her research in multiple invited lectures and presentations at national and international conferences.
