Research Interests
  • Reproductive physiology and neuroendocrinology of reproduction.
  • Development and evaluation of protocols to control seasonal reproduction in small ruminants.
  • Interactions between nutrition and reproduction.
  • Effects of early life nutrition on subsequent metabolic and reproductive function in offspring (developmental programming), both from a human health and farm animal health and productivity perspective.
  • The role of Bone Morphogenetic Proteins (BMPs) in ovarian folliculogenesis and steroidogenesis).
