Dr. Kady Lyons

Master's Degree: California State University, Long Beach (2013)

Doctorate Degree: University of Calgary (2018)

Research Interests: Dr. Lyons is interested in studying maternal contaminant offloading in elasmobranch fishes and the implications that has for health and fitness. She also is interested in understanding factors that affect contaminant accumulation and thus species exposure to anthropogenic chemicals and how that changes over ontogeny.
