Waldo’s research interest revolves around nutrition and physiology of commercial aquaculture species. This involves understanding how production strategies and environmental stressors impact growth efficiency, health and product quality, and developing new feeding strategies accordingly. This implies collaborating with industry partners in the evaluation and development of novel feed ingredients and additives and in the transfer of research findings into commercial application. One of his major interests is the use of proteomics technologies to approach nutritional research and in particular to identify molecular changes and biomarkers associated with gut health.

Trained in Spain (DVM, University of Zaragoza), Canada (MSc, University of Saskatchewan) and Australia (PhD, University of Tasmania), Waldo has 12 years of combined academic and industry experience in animal nutrition with focus on aquaculture species. As a new lecturer at JCU, he is excited about providing students with hands-on learning experience and understanding of the importance of the industry-academia interface.
