Personal profile


I am the Equine Programme Team Leader at SRUC's Oatridge Campus. I lecture across all the levels of equine courses that SRUC offer and I am the course tutor for the Higher National Certificate in Equine Studies course. The main subjects I teach include: Equine Nutrition, Watering and Feeding, Equine Anatomy and Physiology, and Equine Behaviour. As well as my academic qualifications I also hold the British Horse Society Stage 4 Senior Coach in Complete Horsemanship (BHSII) qualification.

Research interests

My research interests focus on gut-brain axis communication. I am particularly interested in how diet effects gut microbiota, and how this may influence behaviour and brain neurochemistry in horses.
