MSc. Project: Assessing carbon dioxide for humane euthanasia of poultry species, advised by Stephanie Torrey.


Advised by Dr. Stephanie Torrey, Logan's research studies involved the euthanasia of turkeys with the use of CO2. 

Logan came to the University of Guelph in 2013 to pursue a B.Sc in Animal Biology and graduated four years later with that degree as well as a minor in Criminal Justice and Public Policy. During her undergraduate degree she had the opportunity to take Experiments in Animal Biology. During this course, she had the opportunity to work with optimizing lighting for precision broiler breeder feeding. She also gained further interest with poultry though her past experience working on a turkey farm.

During her undergraduate degree, Logan was the Colour Contest Director for College Royal and a volunteer for the Frontier College. She maximized her experience by studying and working with multiple species, from companion animals to livestock. This past summer she further gained knowledge with wildlife species including birds of prey as an Animal Caretaker for African Lion Safari. Currently, Logan holds a part-time position with the Lions Foundation of Canada Dog Guides, as well as a  volunteer position with the Sunrise Therapeutic Riding Centre.
