She was principal investigator in 4 research projects and has participation in 23 Research projects 5 of which are funded by the EU.
Research Interests
  • Gas chromatography for the determination of fatty acids in biological samples (milk, meat, blood, adipose tissue, liver, animal feed, pasture, microalgae, etc.) of ruminants
  • Molecular RNA isolation techniques from biological samples (secretory breast cells, adipose tissue, liver, etc.) for the determination of gene expression by RT-PCR in ruminants
  • Molecular DNA isolation techniques from ruminal fluid to identify and count the number of microorganisms in the rumen by RT-PCR
  • Determination of enzyme activity in milk, blood and rumianal fluid
