Christopher is an environmental health scientist with interests in ecological and human health risk assessment, toxicology, and public health. Prior to employment at Neptune, he investigated the role aging plays in modulating the ability of organisms to respond to environmental stress. During this time, he was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to teach and mentor a number of students at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. In a previous life, Mr. Schaupp worked to reconstruct ancient sea surface temperatures in the Southwest Pacific using marine sediment samples from the Integrated Ocean Drilling Program, and performed research in basic molecular biology. He is passionate about science communication and community outreach, particularly in the field of toxicology. Christopher holds a B.A. in biology from Luther College in Decorah, Iowa, and a Ph.D. in environmental toxicology from the University of Washington, Seattle.
