Ph.D., Poultry Science, Texas A&M University
B.S., Poultry Science, Texas A&M University

Research Interests

  • In general, finding ways that will allow us to continue to use chickens as a good source of nutrients for people while minimizing the inputs it takes for us to do that. 
  • Specifically, evaluating feeding strategies aimed at improving the efficiency of poultry production, such as looking into the optimal releasing time and doses for things like prebiotics or organic acids, the amelioration of the effects of feeding aflatoxin-contaminated grain, or alternative feed ingredients.
