Dr. Farin received her BS in Animal Science from Colorado State University, her MS in Reproductive Physiology from West Virginia University and her PhD in Physiology from Colorado State University.  After completing her PhD, she pursued post-doctoral studies in reproductive biology at the University of Missouri.  Dr. Farin is currently a professor in the Department of Animal Science at NC State University where she holds a combined research and teaching appointment.  Dr. Farin’s research interests are in the application of assisted reproductive techniques in domestic livestock, with a primary focus on cattle and goats.    

Dr. Farin also has over 15 years’ experience working with international agricultural development.  Her efforts have included activities both in Haiti and Liberia.  In Haiti, her efforts have been focused on two major areas: improving the genetic quality of Haitian goats through the application of reproductive technologies; and, addressing child malnutrition and supporting community agricultural development through the implementation of school-based meal supplementation programs.  In addition, Dr. Farin participated in a 5-year USAID-funded program to develop a Center of Excellence in Agriculture at Cuttington University (CU) in Liberia.  Her contributions to this effort involved development of an Animal Science degree curriculum, development of supporting materials for 8 courses and laboratories within that curriculum, design & equipping of an Animal Science teaching laboratory, graduate training of futureCU  faculty, and provision of workshops to introduce the laboratory-based Animal Science curriculum to resident CU faculty.
