Thesis title

Evaluation of natural antioxidant sources as functional ingredients in animal feed

Principal Advisor

A/Prof. Yasmina Sultanbawa

Research overview

I have a special interest in evaluating the ameliorative impact of ascorbic acid on broiler chicken performance during nutritional stress as a technique for improving lean meat production and reducing production cost.  

Research focus

With a background in animal science and biotechnology, I seek to find natural substitutes to in-feed synthetic additives/supplements currently being used in the poultry industry as well as to explore the potentials of various low-cost unconventional ingredients for poultry feeding.
