He then traveled to the University of Illinois, in the heart of pig country where he received his Ph.D. in 1981 in Animal Science with a minor in Neural and Behavioral Biology. His research interests are in the science of animal behavior, physiology, and welfare ranging from appropriate housing and production systems for pigs to the brain and immune mechanisms underlying stress.
