Short Research Description

I am a comparative physiologist with a research focus on adaptative/protective mechanisms in the gastrointestinal system in hibernating mammals. A major focus in our current research is to dermine the role of the gut microbiome in hibernation biology, and also apply our findings to potential benefits for human and animal health. Our work also has relevance to wildlife nutrition
