Research Interests

My primary research focus is in ruminant nutrition, specifically in commercial dairy cattle.  I am currently researching the impact of replacing canola meal with solvent extracted distillers grain with solubles as a protein source on milk yield and components in a commercial dairy herd.  Outside of evaluating the production impact of this replacement, I am also building an economic partial budget and sensitivity analysis model to monitor profitability.  After receiving my Masters of Science, here at the University of California, Davis, I will be working in the field as a Ruminant Nutrition Consultant.  My goal is to use my past experiences and education to facilitate evidence-based decision making on farm to promote healthier and more profitable dairy operations.
