Bio/Research

Dr. Anna Kate Shoveller received her PhD in Nutrition and Metabolism at the University of Alberta in 2004 and is currently an Associate Professor in the Department of Animal Biosciences, University of Guelph. From 2007-2015 she was employed by Procter & Gamble and Mars Pet Care where she added to the knowledge of dog and cat nutrition through investigation in the areas of energy metabolism and nutrient budgets of dogs and cats using indirect calorimetry and applying the indicator amino acid oxidation technique to quantify amino acids requirements in adult dogs. Additionally, Shoveller laddered nutrition to owner noticeable behaviour and often factors behaviour and quality of life into her nutrition and physiology based studies. Shoveller has taken this experience and returned to academia where she teaches companion animal nutrition and runs an active comparative nutrition research group. Shoveller is the recipient of the American Society of Nutrition Peter Reed’s Young Investigator Award (2009), The John G. Smale Award in Innovation from Procter & Gamble (2009), and the American Society of Animal Science Jim Corbin Award in Companion Animal Biology (2018). Currently, Shoveller’s laboratory focuses on optimizing nutrition across mammalian species for health and longevity without compromising the future of our food chain. She has published over 70 peer-reviewed papers, contributed to multiple book chapters, applied for multiple patents, and has gained over $2 million in less than 5 years from private industry and public funding agencies.
