Profile

I studied and completed my FDSc in Agriculture at Aberystwyth University and then went onto achieve a BSc (hons) in Agriculture and further to that a MSc in Livestock Science. My undergraduate dissertation looked the prevalence of ketosis in dairy cows at pasture. My postgraduate dissertation was a part of the SMARTSILAGE project led by IBERS, looking at the effect silage chop length had on the production and behaviour of dairy cows. In between my studies I worked for a well renowned feed company as a dairy nutritionist. After completing my MSc I worked for the Welsh red meat levy board as Research and Development Officer. Within my role as Associate lecturer at Aberystwyth I am personal tutor to all students on the BioInnovation modules and I lecture on the agricultural modules and provide all the Welsh medium material for our modules.
