I have a particular interest in non invasive means of data collection such as the use of ultrasound in foetal development and sensors to monitor welfare. I am especially interested the role new technologies can bring to research. I have also developed an interest in all things relating to maternal behaviour and neonatal development. I am focussed on improving the efficiency of data collection as well as promoting high standards of data management. I routinely help develop and advance novel and practical methods of data collection. I aim to keep up to date with current technology and cultivate its use to fit research needs, refining data recording efficiency and accuracy. I am currently involved in providing technical assistance and experimental management on a variety projects including the development of welfare indicators, pig aggression, investigating positive welfare, welfare studies of harm and the role of maternal care on positive welfare.
