By: Norman Martin
Aaron Norris has been named an assistant professor within Texas Tech University's Department of Natural Resources Management, according to officials within the Davis College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources. He officially steps into his new teaching and research post on Sept. 1.
A specialist in livestock production and grazing lands management, he joined the department as a research assistant professor two years ago.
Norris indicated that his research program broadly focuses on progressing and facilitating stakeholder adoption of livestock and forage management regimes in rangeland, pasture, and cultivated production systems. His program will concentrate on enhancing the nutritional and health status of grazing livestock, improving forage management practices, and utilizing strategic grazing to promote system resistance and resilience.
The Thrall, Texas, native's primary goal at Tech is to help strengthen and expand the livestock and range management components in the Department of Natural Resources Management, and to foster research collaborations among other departments within Davis College. His focus will be on supporting stakeholder and producer goals through the formation of cooperative relationships and their involvement in applied research.
Prior to joining the Texas Tech faculty, Norris served as a postdoctoral research associate in beef cattle production at the University of Nevada-Reno, and a research assistant with Texas A&M AgriLife Research in College Station and Stephenville, Texas. He also worked as a teaching assistant at Texas A&M University-College Station and Tarleton State University.
His bachelor's degree in animal production with a minor in range and ranch management and his master's degree in agriculture and natural resource sciences are from Tarleton State University. His doctorate in agronomy is from Texas A&M University-College Station. He is a member of the American Society of Animal Science, Crop Science Society of America, and Society for Range Management.
