A major portion of our research effort uses systems analysis and modeling in support of our research in biochemistry and metabolism, with special interest in integration and synthesis of animal metabolism.

A second area of research examines the putative role that cellular hydrogen ion concentration has upon metabolism and carbon flux through metabolic pathways. . 

The third area of research interest relates to the nutrient requirements of captive animals.
