I am an animal behaviour scientist with interests in how livestock adapt and respond to different housing environments. I have particular interests in the impact of their rearing environments. I work with laying hens, cattle, sheep, and ducks. I conduct assessments to understand behaviour, welfare, physiology, cognition, and affective states working across a broad range of projects relevant to industry.
