Dr. Beazley’s research interests center on the fate and transport of contaminants in our environment. Current and future research activities include studying the impacts of pharmaceuticals and other emerging contaminants on Florida coastal ecosystems, effects of excess nutrient runoff into coastal waterways, and how environmental stress (i.e., high temperature, salinity, contaminants) affects pathogenicity and antibiotic resistance of marine microorganisms.
