My research aims to find natural alternatives to antibiotics in finishing cattle feed. We hope these alternatives can reduce the use of antibiotics and thus reduce chances of antimicrobial resistance. On top of that, these ingredients can maintain or improve cattle feed efficiency, meat quality, and shelf life stability, thus benefiting both producers and consumers.

I am a proud second-generation Gryphon and University of Guelph alumna, having received an Honours Bachelor of Arts in International Development from the UoG in 2008, following in my father's footsteps (Agricultural Engineering '71 and MSc '86). Coming back to Guelph to pursue a doctorate has felt like coming home in all the best ways.

I love the people. It truly feels like a community - everyone is so supportive of each other and there are so many events and opportunities to get involved and meet people with similar interests.

My research in dairy cow stall design is working to improve animal welfare, which is a major area of interest in the agricultural industry.

You will be training with some very accomplished pathologists who often treat you as their equal. You will be challenged constantly to grow as a scientist and as a person. You will learn the basic skills in science and pathology and expected to contribute more to your field than those who have trained you.
