Dr. Chloe Josefson

Education: 

Ph.D., Biological Sciences, Auburn University

B.S., Biology, University of South Florida

B.A., Psychology, University of South Florida 

Chloe joined the lab in spring 2020. She is broadly interested in the physiological costs of reproduction in female mammals and the evolution of life history tradeoffs. She is studying mechanisms underlying variation in maternal investment in lactation and consequences for offspring growth and immune development.

Graduate students

Adamarie Marquez Acevedo
 
Education:
B.S. Animal Science and Global Resource Systems with a minor in Agronomy, Sustainability,              and Animal Ecology, Iowa State University

Ada joined the lab in spring 2021 as an MS student. Her thesis research focuses on the cellular response to heat stress in lactating dairy cattle and links to impaired production.  

Alexandra Pace

 

Education:

B.S. Animal Science, University of Nebraska-Lincoln

 

Alex joined the lab in fall 2021 as an MS student. Her research is focused on understanding the impacts of wildfire smoke exposure on dairy cow health and production, and dairy calf health and growth.

Taylor Townsend

 

Education:

B.S. Animal Science, North Carolina State University

A.S. Computer Technology Integration, Davidson County Community College

 

Taylor joined the lab in spring 2022 as an MS student. Her research aims to understand broad relationships between exposure to fine particulates in wildfire smoke and health and production outcomes in dairy cattle within a regional scope.
