Research Interest

The increasing global demand for food motivates me to design my research program towards finding innovative and sustainable solutions that have impact for producers and animal’s wellbeing in agriculture.

  • Feeding strategies in dairy calves and cows to reduce incidence of diseases, and therefore, excessive use of antimicrobials during their life.
  • The development of cloud-based learning management system that allows us to distribute technical information about dairy management in a proficient way.
  • The development of point-of-care (POC) devices to measure blood metabolites on-farm as important diagnostic and screening tool in the modern dairy industry.
