Profile

Sarah completed a Knowledge, Economy, Skills Scholarship (KESS) funded PhD at IBERS, Aberystwyth University in 2015. This project was in collaboration with Celtic Pride Ltd and focussed on investigating the variation in forage fatty acids with a view to improving meat quality and ruminant efficiency. Previous to this, Sarah studied BSc (Hons) Animal Science and graduated with an upper second class degree from Aberystwyth University in 2011.

Sarah has a background in sheep production, having been bought up on a hill sheep farm in West Wales, and her main research interests include forage-based agriculture, animal production, ruminant nutrition and product quality. She is also a member of the British Society of Animal Science. Sarah is now a Post-doctoral fellow working on the C-DeS project which aims to reduce waste, improve efficiency and meat safety in a UK lamb supply-chain.
