Researcher interests: Quantitative genetics; theoretical and practical aspects of genotype-by-environment (GxE) interactions in meat-type chickens (broilers); breeding for sustainability by improving adaptation of broilers to sub-optimal conditions through genetic manipulation of metabolic, physiological and immunological functions; utilization of DNA markers in quantitative genetics studies and in practical breeding.
