He is especially interested in secondary metabolites involved in the control of Nuclear factor erythroid 2-related factor 2, as potential nutrigenomic intervention to help livestock to face oxidative stress. Hunter research focus is to improve oxidative stress in dairy aniomals via nutrigenomics properties of secondary metabolites in plants

Hunter grew up in the state of Washington in a sheep farm. He got is bachelor degree at Clemson University
