Scholarly Interests

My major research interest lies in improving the lives of research animals. The goal of my research is to improve laboratory animal husbandry and enrichment as well as to refine research procedures when utilizing these animals. I also have an interest in how regulations and policies are applied to animals used in research, teaching, and testing.
