Research Interests

My Ph.D. project was titled "The Effects of Vitamin E Supplementation on Oxidative Stress Measured in Exercising Horses". I do not have a research appointment here but am helping with existing horse research projects. I am currently serving on the committee of a graduate student looking at back pain and thermography in horses.


Extension Interests

I have a 20% extension appointment. I will be helping with the existing youth programs to implement youth quiz bowls, state and regional horse shows, and the Annual 4-H Horse School. We are also working to put together horse judging clinics for these groups. I will also collaborate with other equine faculty to assist with short courses, potentially teaching nutrition and horsemanship topics.
