Research synopsis: 

My work focuses on equine endocrine disorders and comparative endocrinology in the areas of diabetes, Cushing’s disease, and insulin disorders, and also laminitis, a damaging disease of the equine foot. I am particularly interested in using the approaches embedded in the One Health, which seeks to optimize the health of humans, animals, and the environment through an innovative and integrative, interdisciplinary approach to education, research, and practice.
