Upon completing research, I will also have the marketing knowledge in order to create programs and advertisements that will target the community and help improve the consumption patterns of those in the community.
At the completion of my Master's, I will begin my PhD within the Department of Population Medicine at Guelph. I will be starting a new project, but still looking at human, animal and environmental health.
I chose to attend the University of Guelph because of the my interest in the field of research the chemistry program offered. I also found the facilities give excellent opportunities to learn many new skills.
I first started in my current lab as an undergraduate research assistant and then as a undergraduate project student. During this time I fell in love with the area of antimicrobial resistance and research, but what really made me choose to stay at Guelph was my lab community. My advisor and lab associate are beyond incredible to work with, and I knew it would be difficult to find that type of quality training anywhere else.
I have had the opportunity to share my research results with farmers, and help teach them how to identify mild lameness in their herds, which improves the overall herd health and production for the farmer, as well as welfare for the cows.
