Postdocs and Visiting Scholars

Ramon C Botigelli, Ph.D.

  • Posdoctoral Scholar
  • Faculty Sponsor: Anna Denicol
  • Start Date: 2022
I am exploring the mammal’s embryo development, embryonic cell fate and adult cell reprogramming into iPSCs for understanding the key players of these pathways/mechanism on maintenance of pluripotency and cell differentiation to apply on in vitro models. Additional research interests: embryo production, epigenetics, metabolism, stem cells and chimeras.

Vinícius Carneiro de Souza, Ph.D.

  • Postdoctoral Scholar
  • Faculty Sponsor: Ermias Kebreab
  • Start Date: August 2021
My research focuses on modeling the interactions between weather variability, dry matter intake, and methane emissions intensity in dairy cattle in the United States. I am particularly interested in how we can integrate mathematical modeling with nutrition, physiology and management practices to achieve sustainable ruminant production systems.
