B.Sc.(H) in Animal Biology (2010-1014)
M.Sc. by thesis in Animal Nutrition with Dr. Vern Osborne (2014-2016)
Ph.D. in Canine Nutrition with Dr. Anna-Kate Shoveller (2016-present)
My research to date has focused on the nutrition and metabolism of ruminant and monogastric animals, with a recent emphasis on companion animals. For my M.Sc. I worked with Drs. Vern Osborne and John Cant investigating the use of gel-encapsulate technology for the targeted, post-ruminal administration of bioactive ingredients to dairy cattle. I am currently working with Dr. Anna-Kate Shoveller where my Ph.D. research focuses on maximizing the performance and optimizing the health and welfare of high-performance sporting dogs by way of step-wise exercise regimes and nutritional intervention.
