With a background in Agricultural Science, a PhD in Bovine Reproductive Physiology, and training in post traumatic stress counselling and support, I joined the university in 2004. After joining, I successfully completed a PGCHE course and a HDip in Organisational Behaviour. I enjoy collaborating in research on issues relating to diversity in the workplace and emotions in decision making in the farming industry.


PhD (University College Dublin, Republic of Ireland)

MAgrSc (Wageningen University, The Netherlands)

HDip Organisational Behaviour (Birkbeck UK)

My research interests span topics such as gender issues - e.g. gender letter writing representation and diversity in STEMM and other industries - and behaviour and attitudes towards employee and animal welfare in the agricultural sector, specifically the pig and dairy industry.
