I did my undergraduate studies in poultry science, provided a good knowledge of multidisciplinary field of biology along with the experience in statistics. I continued to work on animal breeding in MSc and PhD. During my MSc and PhD program I achieved knowledge and experience in molecular and quantitative genetics. We developed and applied longitudinal models for feed intake, growth and residual feed intake traits in F2 chickens. The models were extended to conduct genome wide study for genes affecting trajectory traits. In addition, relationship between residual feed intake and carcass composition, meat quality and size of small intestine in a population of F2 chickens were studied. Currently I am a Postdoctoral Fellow under supervision of Dr. Christine Beas and Dr. Ben Wood at the University of Guelph, where I am working on production and broodiness traits in turkey.
