Jennifer Van Os, PhD

I am an Assistant Professor and Extension Specialist in Animal Welfare. The research in my lab focuses on understanding and improving dairy animal welfare, particularly by identifying low-barrier solutions. I welcome collaborations with others who seek to promote the sustainability of the dairy industry and to improve quality of life for dairy animals.

Sarah Adcock, PhD

I am an Assistant Professor in Animal Welfare with a research and teaching role. The goal of my lab is to evaluate how farm practices affect animal behavior, physiology and productivity, and develop strategies to optimize these outcomes. My current focus is on sheep welfare, but I welcome collaborations in other species.
