Eugenia Herwig PhD Student

Eugenia discovered studying poultry is the best way to combine her interests in birds, animal behaviour and applied science! Under the supervision of Drs. Hank Classen and Karen Schwean-Lardner, Eugenia is enrolled in a Ph.D. program focusing on poultry nutrition and behaviour.

Originally from Argentina, Eugenia completed an undergraduate degree in Biological Science at the University of Buenos Aires. After taking a course on biodiversity, she developed a love of birds and their population dynamics, and geared her undergraduate focus to ecology and animal behaviour. Before coming to Saskatoon, Eugenia finished a M.Sc. program in Animal Behaviour and Welfare at the University of Guelph studying foraging and dustbathing behaviour of laying hens in large furnised cages.
