overview

Professionally I have three great passions - veterinary students; promoting the best health, behavior, and welfare for animals; and making the veterinary profession the best that it can be. These converge in teaching and research focusing on emerging issues within the profession, particularly within the disciplines of animal behavior and animal welfare.
