My Story

Danielle is a postdoctoral research associate in the Department of Environmental and Global Health at the University of Florida. In 2021, she earned her Ph.D. in Pharmacology at Wayne State University, after majoring in Biology and Psychology with a minor in Neuroscience from Hope College in 2015.


Since joining the WATER lab in 2016, her doctoral (and ongoing) research has explored the lifespan and legacy health effects of developmental exposure to environmental endocrine-disrupting toxicants, including TCDD (dioxin), lead, and nanoplastics. Her research goal is to use the zebrafish model to look at the specific timing of molecular events during early development that become dysregulated by endocrine disruption, leading to effects ranging from infertility to neurological dysfunction later in life and in following generations.


Outside of the lab, she enjoys reading, music, podcasts, theater, researching and exploring new places, and cuddling all available fuzzy animals.
