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.

Jennifer Van Os, PhD
I am an Assistant Professor and Extension Specialist in Animal Welfare. My research focuses on understanding and improving dairy animal welfare, particularly by identifying low-barrier solutions.

Please note I do not have openings for new graduate students in my lab for the 2024-2025 academic year. If opportunities arise for 2025-2026, I will update this site.
