Jessica Hua

Associate Professor

Biological Sciences


Hua's research focuses on understanding how anthropogenic chemicals influence aquatic systems and employ a multidisciplinary approach that combines concepts and tools from ecology, evolution, and toxicology. Towards this goal, her lab works with a wide diversity of organisms including amphibians, zooplankton, amphipods, isopods, snails and insects. Current lab topics include:

  1. Community ecotoxicology
  2. Evotoxicology
  3. Disease ecology
  4. Phenotypic plasticity
