Research: Maternal occupational exposure to organic solvents during pregnancy and infant neurodevelopment

Christine investigates the impact of gestational exposure to organic solvents on offspring neurodevelopment. Her research uses electrophysiological measures to assess two fundamental visual functions, namely contrast sensitivity and colour vision. In addition, she uses clinical tests of cognitive and motor development to measure these abilities in infants and young children. She hopes that her interdisciplinary training in Psychology and Toxicology will allow her to make significant contributions to the assessment and intervention of adverse reproductive outcomes in the workplace.
