On Friday, April 3, I presented my Ph.D. exit seminar “Understanding dairy cow behavior to reduce heat load and conserve water” as part of the 2015 Spring ABGG Seminar Series at U.C. Davis.
I really enjoy public speaking, and was excited to share all the results of many years of hard work. I was so honored and moved by the introduction my advisor (Dr. Cassandra Tucker) gave, and I hope to continue to live up to her kind words! Afterward, I received lots of interesting questions from the audience – which included many friends and family from both near and far. I will be defending my dissertation later this year, and I was very proud to share my research findings with everyone.
