Something Fishy about Wastewater

Dr. Sigal Balshine  

 22nd October, 2016  11:00am to 12:00 noon

Do you ever think what happens to soap once it is down the drain? Small amounts of unnatural liquids, solids, and gases are making their way into our water, which is causing fish and other animals living in or near these waterways exposed. Come out to learn how animals like fish and frogs respond to these chemicals, and what we can do about it!  

About the speaker:

Dr. Sigal Balshine is a full professor in the Department of Psychology, Neuroscience & Behaviour, McMaster University and an associate member in the Department of Biology.  She completed her B.Sc. in Zoology at the University of Toronto, and her Ph.D. in the Department of Zoology, University of Cambridge in 1995. She then moved to Tel Aviv University in Israel to take up a George Wise Post-doctoral Fellowship in 1996. In 1997 she was awarded a two year Royal Society Fellowship that was taken up at the Konrad Lorenz Institute for Ethology in Vienna, Austria. She also held a postdoctoral position at the University of East Anglia for one year before joining McMaster University in Canada as an assistant professor in 2000.
