My time is split between research as Principal Scientist and serving as Chief Scientist. As Chief Scientist I am member of the Senior Leadership Team and I represent and advocate for our scientists and our science internally and externally. My own research is about providing solutions for animal health issues through understanding the immunology of animals, e.g., by developing novel diagnostics and vaccines. I am also involved in research about how food strengthens people's immune system.
