Dr. Andrew Conroy, professor of applied animal science and integrated agriculture, has been with the University of New Hampshire for twenty-five years. He specializes in animal agriculture, and his teaching includes Large Animal Behavior and Handling, Forage and Grassland Management, Dairy Herd Management, CREAM (Cooperative Real Education in Agricultural Management), Dairy Selection, and Dairy Cattle Diseases, among other courses.
Dr. Conroy became involved with research abroad projects after recognizing the potential for student study and research of sites he visited during his year as a Fulbright Scholar in Namibia and while on consulting trips to other African countries. He has mentored other undergraduate researchers, as well as Galina, which included helping students with capstone or thesis projects in Italy, Tanzania, Brazil, and Namibia. Encouraging his students to publish their research in Inquiry is yet another way in which he helps them acquire valuable skills for their future careers.
