I am a Lecturer in sheep production in the International Sheep Research Centre at Massey University. After completing my PhD at Massey University in 2007 I worked as a Research Officer in a contract research company that specialises in studies conducted under the guidelines of Good Laboratory Practice (GLP). In 2012, I returned to Massey to work in the Sheep Research Centre to work on projects ranging from large flock studies of hogget breeding, to feeding hogget ewes on alternative herbages during lambing to an investigation of ewe longevity.
My principle interests are in ewe and hogget production and longevity. In particular ewe and hogget nutrition during pregnancy and the effect of ewe and lamb behaviour on lamb survival and growth to weaning.
