Personal profile

Research Interests

Sharon's key research interests lie in understanding the role that rumen microbes play in ruminant food security. Her research is strategically focused on understanding the functionality of rumen microbeswith the aim of addressing food security and human healthcoupled with industrial biotechnology related to the rumen microbiome. Sharon also has a general interest in microbiomes and occasionally focuses attention on poultry, pig and even human lung microbiomes.

Sharon coordinates the global 'Rumen Microbial Genomics' network, is an editor for the journals Microbiome and Frontiers in Microbiology, as well as a ruminant nutrition section editor for the journal Animal.

Achievements

Sharon is in receipt of a Brazil Special Visiting Researcher Award (2014 - present).
