Research Interests and Focus
I am completing 35 years of research with an avian model on the e! ffect of nutritional status (deficiencies and excesses) on physiologica! l processes with the intent of designing better quality diets.
I am also doing research on the use of Web-based, on-line nutrition programs, used either in conjunction with lecture classes or as self-directed, stand-alone courses, on the quality of learning. This will help determine if such programs can replace conventional methods of teaching.
