Research interests are in regulation of lipid accretion in ruminant adipose tissue, lipogenesis in lactating bovine (beef) mammary gland and factors that influence cholesterol and fatty acid contents of animal tissues. Lipid accretion research involves enzymatic and molecular evaluation to understand both acute and chronic effects on lipid biosynthesis, as well as on lipoportein lipase, fatty acid transport and fatty acid desaturation. Study of dietary effects on mammary gland lipogenesis in beef cows is a recent research focus. Fatty acid and cholesterol studies focus on nutrition of sheep, beef cattle and grass fed beef.
