Associate Professor Abdalla, A.L., from the University of São Paulo, is a distinguished researcher with a comprehensive academic background in Agronomy and Animal Nutrition, including expertise in the application of Nuclear Techniques in Mineral Metabolism in Ruminants. Having completed a post-doctoral program at Reading University (UK) on whole crop products for dairy cows and another at UC-Davis (USA) focusing on modeling in ruminal fermentation, Abdalla, A.L. possesses extensive knowledge in the field. Since 1985, Abdalla, A.L. has been actively engaged in research at CENA/USP, specializing in nuclear and related techniques for agricultural productivity studies. As a recognized authority, Abdalla, A.L. serves as an ad hoc consultant for funding agencies such as FAPESP, CNPq, and international research foundations. Additionally, he plays a pivotal role as an advisor in the graduate program at CENA/USP and as a postdoctoral supervisor at the University of São Paulo. With the last five years, Abdalla, A.L. has significantly contributed to the fields of ruminant nutrition and methane mitigation, evident through a series of impactful research papers published. Among others collaborating with Beauchemin et al. (2022), he participated in a comprehensive review exploring options for mitigating enteric methane emissions in ruminants, providing valuable insights for sustainable livestock practices. Abdalla, A.L. also contributed to studies predicting enteric methane emissions in sheep, advancing our understanding, and aiding in predictive model development for improved herd management (Belanche et al., 2023). Further enhancing non-invasive methods for evaluating and optimizing ruminant nutrition, Abdalla, A.L. and collaborators investigated the utility of purine derivatives and creatinine urine excretion as tools for estimating sheep feed intake (Del Valle et al., 2023). In the realm of biocircularity and sustainable grazing, Abdalla, A.L. explored the in vitro degradability and methane production from various by-products fed to ruminants, highlighting their potential as sustainable feed alternatives in a study with Bizzuti et al. (2023). Additionally, he investigated the potential of Chloroleucon acacioides trees as an alternative feed supplement for grazing ruminants in tropical silvopastoral systems, contributing to sustainable livestock feeding practices in diverse agroecosystems (Ovani et al., 2023). Abdalla, A.L. and colleagues also studied the impact of Tithonia diversifolia on in vitro rumen microbial synthesis in sheep diets, suggesting its potential as a sustainable feed option without adversely affecting gas and methane production (Pérez-Márquez et al., 2023). In collaboration with Monteiro et al. (2024), Abdalla, A.L. explored the role of crop-livestock-forestry systems in mitigating greenhouse gas emissions and enhancing the sustainability of forage-based livestock systems in the Amazon biome. Emphasizing integrated approaches, this research underscores the importance of addressing environmental challenges in a holistic manner. (Source: Lattes Curriculum)
