I conducted undergraduate research as a member of the McNair Post-baccalaureate
Achievement Program that assessed if bruising could be detected on Holstein culled cows using
infrared thermal imaging technology. I also collaborated in assessing and authoring an article
discussing FSIS Humane Handling Enforcement Actions from slaughter facilities and assisted
with research that examined the effectiveness of different locations of a captive bolt stun on
cadaver heads from market hogs.
At UC Davis, I plan to research how cattle behavior and physiology is affected by
various management decisions and cattle handling practices.
