  • Primary research emphasis is the study of growth and reproductive performance as influenced by selection for increased body weight. 
  • Current research includes the utilization of Japanese quail as a model for studying the effects of timing of selection for increased body weight on growth and body composition; investigating the use of total body electrical conductivity as a non-invasive means of measuring carcass composition in poultry. 
  • Also overseeing the work associated with ratite research.
