Crystal L. Levesque, PhD

Assistant Professor
South Dakota State University
Brookings, South Dakota

Crystal Levesque was born and raised on a broiler and mixed grain farm in central Saskatchewan, Canada. She completed her PhD at the University of Alberta in amino acid metabolism during pregnancy followed by post-doctoral training at Prairie Swine Center (pig as a model) and University of Guelph (energy and amino acid metabolism) prior to accepting a position of Assistant Professor of monogastric nutrition at South Dakota State University. Her main research interests are protein and amino acid metabolism during pregnancy and maternal nutritional influence on offspring growth and development. She is actively involved in collaborative research on the impacts of alternative feeds and dietary additives on piglet growth, immune function, and gut health post-weaning and the use of the pig as a model for human health. Crystal is an active member of the American Society of Animal Science and the American Society of Nutrition serving on various organizing committees. In her spare time she enjoys gardening and landscaping and playing with the grandchildren. She lives with her husband in Brookings, SD.
