Research Focus

I work with monogastric animals, mainly pigs and poultry, on the study of interactions between the feed composition and the intestinal health; feed evaluation; and feed additives to improve the health and productivity of pigs and broilers, and to reduce the use of antibiotics. My principal research area is the interaction among carbohydrates, protein, phytate and minerals in the digestive tract. I have also a special interest on the influence of prenatal and perinatal events, including early feeding strategies, on the performance of the animals in the following stages of life.
