Working on improving reproduction of dairy cattle through genetics and genomics under the supervision of Dr. Angela Canovas and in collaboration with the Semex Alliance. Recently completed a PhD looking at the genetics and genomics of embryo production and embryo quality traits in Holstein cattle, under the supervision of Drs. Flavio Schenkel and Filippo Miglior. Grew up on a dairy farm in the Eastern Townships of Quebec and developed a passion for the dairy industry and Holsteins.
