Dr. Luis O. Tedeschi is a Professor in the Department of Animal Science and Texas A&M AgriLife Research. He is a Texas A&M AgriLife Research Faculty Fellow and Chancellor EDGES (Enhancing Development and Generating Excellence in Scholarship) Fellow. He received his bachelor's degree in Agronomy Engineer from the University of São Paulo (Brazil) at Escola Superior de Agricutura "Luiz de Queiroz", campus Piracicaba, in 1991, his MS degree in Animal and Forage Sciences from the University of São Paulo (Brazil) at Escola Superior de Agricutura "Luiz de Queiroz", campus Piracicaba, in 1996, and his PhD degree in Animal Science from Cornell University (NY) in 2001. Prior to joining Texas A&M University in 2005, Dr. Tedeschi was a Research Associate at Cornell University (NY) from 2002 to 2005.

Dr. Tedeschi conducts research on energy and nutrient requirements of grazing and feedlot animals, growth biology and bioenergetics, chemical composition and kinetics of fermentation of feeds, modeling and simulation of decision support systems, and evaluation of models (http://www.nutritionmodels.com). He utilizes System Dynamics concepts applied to nutrition.

Dr. Tedeschi has been an active developer of submodels and contributor to the Cornell Net Carbohydrate and Protein System (i.e., Large Ruminant Nutrition System) and the Cattle Value Discovery System. He has published 280+ manuscripts in peer-reviewed journals and presented in more than 150 conferences and workshops worldwide on modeling nutrition. Professional memberships include the American Society of Animal Science, Brazilian Society of Animal Science, Feed Analysis Consortium, American Registry of Professional Animal Scientists, and System Dynamics Society.
