MUTIAN NIU, BS, MS, MS, PhD

Assistant Professor of Nutrition & Data Analytics, University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine

Research Areas: statistical modeling and machine learning, nutrient partitioning, and utilization, sustainable agriculture, herd management

Contact Information:

Integration of dairy farming data; development of statistical models and machine learning algorithms with focuses on three main areas 1) underlying mechanisms of nutrient partitioning, and improving nutrient utilization efficiency and income-over-feed cost, 2) sustainable agriculture, in particular quantitative aspects of animal production in relation to environmental sustainability, and 3) improving herd management efficiency, animal health and well-being.
