Welcome to the Lactation and Environmental Physiology Lab. We study topics that are relevant to dairy production, human health, and evolutionary biology. We are broadly interested in the physiological adaptations that have evolved to enable milk synthesis in mammals and the interaction between environmental conditions and maternal and offspring physiology and performance. By using an integrated and multidisciplinary approach to our research, we seek to advance our understanding of how animals respond to environmental stressors and the mechanisms contributing to variation in lactation performance.
