Interested in doing an MRes?

I am always interested in supervising masters and PhD projects looking at the following areas, but I am also open to other research projects looking at welfare and behaviour in farm, equine or companion animals:
  • Precision livestock farming.
  • Using technology to assess animal welfare.
  • Facial recognition in sheep.
  • Facial expression of pain during parturition in sheep.
  • Facial expression in BOAS dogs.
  • Welfare assessments in equine, farm, or companion animals
  • Disease and pain in farm and equine species.
  • Lameness in farm or equine species.
Please email me for more information on how to apply for these projects or if you are interested in collaborating with me.
