    Your work matters here. Graduate researchers at U of G improve life, that's a powerful community to be part of.

    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.

    We are interested in structure-function relationships of enzymes and enzyme evolution. We are studying steroid degrading enzymes from the pathogen Mycobacterium tuberculosis and other related bacteria. We are also interested in enzymes that can be used to detoxify environmental pollutants.

    The problems I have worked on in animal science have direct implications for genetic selection, food quality (e.g. cow milk), and animal health. On the other hand, my work in understanding the structure and driving mechanisms of ecological (e.g. plant-pollinator) networks have indirect implications for ecosystem conservation, management, and restoration.
