I teach a variety of undergraduate and graduate courses in the areas of Animal Science and Ruminant Nutrition. In addition to my teaching responsibilities I also hold a research appointment at Texas A&M AgriLife Research in Stephenville, TX where I conduct research in the area of nutrient management and ruminant nutrition.  Additionally, I serve as the Associate Dean of the College of Graduate Studies at Tarleton State University.

My research interests include nutrient management from a nutritional, as well as an environmental standpoint.  I am also interested in using novel plant secondary compounds to alter nutrient availability and metabolism in ruminant animals.

I am a member of the American Society of Animal Science.
