Andrea Knecht is a PhD candidate in Molecular and Cellular Biology at Oregon State University. Her current research focuses on evaluating the effects of developmental exposure to PAHs and OPAHs on learning and energetics in larval and adult zebrafish. This is accomplished by investigating whether developmental PAH exposures lead to lifetime physiological and behavioral effects. She received her B.S. in Cellular, Molecular, & Developmental Biology and B.A. in Chemistry at University of Washington.
