Dr. White’s research focuses on the animal/environment interface with the broad goal of leveraging animal nutrition to enhance sustainability of food production systems. This work focuses at three levels:
- basic research evaluating factors regulating rumen fermentation;
- applied research testing strategies to enhance feed efficiency; and
- systems-level research evaluating the wider socioeconomic impacts of livestock production and management.
