I am exploring the mammal’s embryo development, embryonic cell fate and adult cell reprogramming into iPSCs for understanding the key players of these pathways/mechanism on maintenance of pluripotency and cell differentiation to apply on in vitro models. Additional research interests: embryo production, epigenetics, metabolism, stem cells and chimeras.
My research focuses on modeling the interactions between weather variability, dry matter intake, and methane emissions intensity in dairy cattle in the United States. I am particularly interested in how we can integrate mathematical modeling with nutrition, physiology and management practices to achieve sustainable ruminant production systems.
As a major researcher in Functional Annotation of Animal Genomes (FAANG). Take charge of annotating and comparative analyzing the pig, chicken, and cattle genome by omics data such as ChIP-seq, ATAC-seq, HiC, RNA-seq, GWAS, etc.
