Research in my laboratory focuses on assessment and improvement of animal welfare. I am particularly interested in how the behavior of dairy cattle changes in response to controversial procedures (e.g. tail docking, disbudding), management decisions (e.g. stocking density), and housing design (e.g. type and quantity of free-stall bedding, effects of inclement weather).
