Dr Clara Montgomery


My expertise is in entomology, sensory biology and animal husbandry. I spent my PhD researching how the electrostatic charge on bumblebees affects their ecology, their sensory capabilities, their proficiency as pollinators and their relationship with flowering plants. My post-doctoral work questioned whether the electrostatic charge on honeybees could be used to enhance biocontrol of fruiting crops. I also have experience in veterinary parasitology, and expertise working with horses and companion animals.

I teach Companion Animal Management as well as equine handling skills, and am Module Leader for the Veterinary Related Vocational Skills (non-farm animal) module.
