My current research is focussed on how an understanding of the natural behaviour of domestic cattle can help improve their production efficiency as well as their welfare. This includes an interest in domestication and the evolutionary basis of behaviour. I am also interested in the role that precision livestock technologies can play in promoting sustainable livestock production and animal welfare.
I am currently the co-supervisor of three postgraduate students: Juliana Garcia Alvarez, Olivia Bolton and Georgina Wager
