Speaker Biography: Kerry graduated from the University of Guelph from the Bachelor of Science in Agriculture in 2016, before continuing with graduate studies in CGIL under the supervision of Dr. Christine Baes and Dr. Filippo Miglior. Kerry’s M.Sc. work focused on methods to incorporate feed efficiency into a selection index for dairy cattle. This topic continued into her Ph.D. where she focused on using random regression models to estimate genetic parameters for feed efficiency under the supervision of Dr. Baes and Dr. Flavio Schenkel. During her time in CGIL, Kerry was CGIL Seminar Co-ordinator, as well as treasurer, and co-president of the Animal Biosciences Graduate Student Council. Upon completing her Ph.D. in September of 2021, Kerry joined CGIL as a Post Doctoral Researcher and in May 2022 she joined the Genetics Team at Genesus, a swine breeding company, as a Geneticist.
