Dr Chantal Lanctit is an ARC DECRA Research Fellow at the Australian Rivers Institute (ARI). Her research interests include understanding how pollutants negatively impact aquatic wildlife, with a particular emphasis on developmental and physiological effects in larval frogs. Her DECRA project entitled ‘Metal toxicokinetics and toxicodynamics in developing anurans: how metamorphosis influences metal burdens’ will be the first to explore how the mobilisation and transference of metal burdens during metamorphosis influences
toxicity in amphibians. By applying high-resolution analytical and imaging technologies, including X-ray fluorescence microscopy at the Australian Synchrotron, Chantal aims to unravel this interesting phenomenon to improve our knowledge of how complex life cycles influence the vulnerability of wildlife to toxic metal burdens.
Before starting her DECRA Chantal worked at the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) in Monaco for 6 months, where she used nuclear tools to study the effects of microplastics and associated chemical contaminants on marine organisms. She completed her PhD at Central Queensland University (2016) on the toxicity of coal mine wastewater to freshwater organisms. Prior to moving to Australia, she received her Masters from the University of Ottawa in Canada, where she studied endocrine disrupting effects of glyphosate-based herbicides in tadpoles.
