Research interests

My research addresses broad questions relevant to physiology of production animals, and focuses specifically on the study of the interactions between nutrition, metabolism and reproduction in ruminants with particular interest in the discovery on new biomarkers of negative energy balance.

I also have additional research interest in the role of oxidative stress in domestic animal physiology.
