Assistant Professor of Animal Science

Santiago's research falls under the umbrella of grazing ecology, with a particular emphasis on plant-herbivore interactions in livestock production systems. He is especially interested in the understanding of biotic and abiotic interactions in grasslands and how these interactions simultaneously regulate large herbivore responses and impacts at various spatial scales. He has increasingly conducted applied research on agricultural ecology and the sustainability of pastoral farms.
