Taylor Lane – ESR4 – University of York
Fate and uptake of chemicals in aquatic and soil systems in the future (WP 4)
Taylor Lane is an environmental toxicologist from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada. He is passionate about species conservation and his first research experience took place in Gamboa, Panama while volunteering with the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute. He holds a BSc in Biology and a MSc in Environmental Toxicology, both from the University of Saskatchewan. Taylor’s MSc thesis focused on the development of an embryo injection exposure model for studying the maternal transfer of selenium in early life stage fish. Prior to beginning his MSc, Taylor worked as a research technician on a project which characterized the toxicity of a diamond mine effluent to aquatic organisms across multiple trophic levels. In addition to research, Taylor enjoys hiking, exploring nature and playing sports.
Starting June 2019, Taylor is a PhD student in the Department of Environment and Geography at the University of York, as a Marie Sklodowska-Curie Early Stage Researcher in Ecotoxicology. Taylor’s project is within the ECORISK2050 Innovative Training Network and will be centered on identifying how potential future environmental changes will influence the fate, persistence and uptake of agricultural and pharmaceutical chemicals within aquatic and terrestrial systems.
