My research involves understanding the interaction between oxidative status, microbiome (bacterial communities) sites, and subsequent fertility outcomes using a pig model. I am interested in developing strategies that promote beneficial bacterial profiles in females to increase reproductive output as well as the translational potential between mammalian species.
