Personal profile

Research Focus

The overall theme of my research is the consequences of animal management on their performance, ability to cope with pathogens and environmental impact. 

Specific areas of research include:

  • Modelling the responses of animals to their management, including feeding and health challenges
  • Interactions between host nutrition and responses to pathogens in laboratory and farm animals
  •  Describing different genotypes and phenotypes of animals, with emphasis in their ability to cope with disease
  • Factors,  including health challenges, affecting the behaviour and welfare of animals 
  • Intridtion of disruptive technologies, such as automated disease detection, in livestock systems 
  • The effects of climate change on disease risk to farm and wild animal populations
