The 2023 Fall Seminar Series will feature Tham Hoang, Associate Professor of Ecotoxicology and Risk Assessment Laboratory in the School of Fisheries, Aquaculture, and Aquatic Sciences at Auburn University. Dr. Hoang will give a talk titled “Environmental toxicology-from fundamentals to applied science: case studies with heavy metals and insecticides” on Tuesday, Nov. 7, at 3:30 p.m. in Room 2217 of the College of Forestry, Wildlife and Environment Building located at 602 Duncan Drive, Auburn, AL.
Dr. Hoang is hosted by Dr. Latif Kalin, a Professor in the College of Forestry, Wildlife and Environment. Dr. Hoang will discuss the breadth of the interdisciplinary science of environmental toxicology in the context of two subjects. One will focus on the bioavailability and toxicity of heavy metals and insecticides in the aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems, including the toxicity of mosquito control insecticides to larvae (caterpillar) and adult butterflies via different exposure routes in the South Florida ecosystem. The second subject will include the application of environmental toxicology data to ecological risk assessment in support of development of environmental quality guidelines and management.
Dr. Tham Hoang is an Associate Professor in the School of Fisheries, Aquaculture, and Aquatic Sciences at Auburn University. He received his doctoral degree in Environmental Toxicology with a minor in Environmental Statistics from Clemson University. He has over 20 years of research experience in environmental toxicology and risk assessment. His research on the toxicity of contaminants, especially for metals, is related to ecological risk assessment and environmental quality criteria and guidelines for aquatic organisms. Over the past 20 years, he has collaborated with colleagues in academic, private, and governmental sectors worldwide for research and education to understand environmental impacts of contaminants and to support environmental protection and sustainability.
