Diego Andres Lopez Diaz

My name is Diego Andres Lopez Diaz. I am from Colombia. I grew up in Bogotá, the capital city of my country. Currently, I am studying Animal Sciences at the National University of Colombia, where I focused my studies in swine production. Even taking the leadership of the Swine Study Group at my university. Thanks to this study group and the recommendation of Gloria Casas and her husband, German Guerrero, I obtained the opportunity to join Dr. Stein’s Monogastric Nutrition Laboratory as a visiting scholar. I will be here for the next year in order to satisfy requirements for my BS degree and to further my understanding of monogastric nutrition.

I am grateful to Dr. Stein for this opportunity because I know that he is one of the greatest researchers in monogastric nutrition. That is why I will learn as much as I can, in order to use all this knowledge to continue my studies and improve swine production in my country.
