Research Interests

My research in the area of stress physiology has focused primarily on the effects of stress in multiple animal models, physiological states and tolerance levels, with a concentration on heat stress, transport stress, and animal well-being.  Stress physiology employs a variety of applied and basic scientific techniques allowing for the investigation of issues ranging from thermal stress, to metabolic and developmental alterations.
