Personal profile

Research interests

My current research interests are around precision livestock farming (PLF), feed efficiency and methane mitigation strategies, this includes:

  • Investigating the use of multi-sensor systems to remotely assess the performance and efficiency of beef animals.
  • Physiological monitoring of youngstock as a method of early detection of disease.
  • Modernisation of guidelines for beef cattle feeding systems.
  • Assessment of electronic identification (EID) in bovine systems (transportation and traceability).
  • The use of novel biomarkers (N15) as a proxy for the performance of cattle and sheep.
  • Investigating novel diet additives as methane mitigation strategies and their effects of feed efficiency.
  • Applications of near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) in forage analysis.


I am currently involved in teaching in the following areas:

  • Information Technology: Applications Software 1
  • Energy losses and efficiency in agroecosystems (livestock systems)
