My research pertains to ketosis and fatty liver, which are common metabolic disorders in early lactation dairy cows. The projects I am a part of include predicting disease incidence using milk sample data and machine learning algorithms, discovering genes and metabolic pathways associated with the disorders via genomics and transcriptomics, and interrogating the role of the protein PNPLA3 in liver triglyceride accumulation.
