Ina is a Lecturer in the New Zealand Centre for Precision Agriculture, Massey University. Prior to joining Massey University Ina was a lecture at Hartpury College, University of West of England, UK where she led the BSc Animal Behaviour and Welfare programme. Her research interests lie in the area of animal management, behaviour and precision farming. In recent years, Ina has focused on the use of emerging precision tools to track and monitor livestock and the use of aerial imaging systems in pasture mamagement.
My two main areas of research interest are in animal behaviour and welfare and precision agriculture. In particular, how environmental factors affect animal behaviour and how we can successfully use emerging precision tools to track and monitor these interactions. More recently I have developed an interest in the use of aerial imaging systems in farm management, specifically how Remotely Piloted Aerial Systems can be used to help with pasture management.
