Research Interest

Small ruminant advanced reproductive techniques, pain management in food animals and preventative medicine for goats are my specific areas of interest. My research has focused on sterilization of feral horses, the effects of in utero androgen exposure on ram lambs and small ruminant semen collection methods.  My future research will focus on pain management in food animals, porcine blood typing, small ruminant parasite prevention and the bovine ocular microbiome.
