Compositions and functions of microbiomes in agriculture, ecological restoration, and engineered systems for ecosystem service provision and climate change adaptation
Associate Professor of Nutritional Physiology
Investigation of dietary factors that modify ruminal fatty acid biohydrogenation, regulation of synthesis of milk components, and basic regulation of lipid synthesis with the continual goal of developing feeding strategies to improve the efficiency and performance of dairy cows
Associate Professor of Nutritional Sciences
We seek to understand disease-related functional changes in the context of global changes in lipid mediators (bioactive metabolites of dietary fatty acids) and use them to identify markers of disease and better ways to prevent or manage disease
Professor of Agricultural and Biological Engineering
Application of fundamental engineering science to microbial ecosystems, developing innovative strategies for a more sustainable agriculture and the emerging bio-based economy.
Assistant Professor of Environmental and Energy Economics
The welfare evaluation of current and proposed policies given the presence of pre-existing policy distortions and multiple market failures, and the evaluation of the incentives, institutions, and decision-making processes that explain why imperfect policies often emerge
