Caroline González-Vega is from Bogota, Colombia. She earned her BS from the National University of Colombia in 2010. While working on her BS, she came to our lab as a visiting scholar. After graduating, she returned and earned her M.S. in 2012, and her Ph. D. in 2016.

Dr. González-Vega worked on calcium digestibility during her masters and PhD. She demonstrated the loss of endogenous calcium in the intestinal tract of pigs, which made it possible to calculate values for standardized total tract digestibility of calcium. She also worked to determine STTD calcium requirements for weanling and growing pigs.

She currently works as a Swine Research Manager for Evonik Industries in Georgia.
