Personal profile

Research interests

My research addresses fundamental, welfare-relevant questions of animal behaviour and cognition.  I am interested in why domestic animals do what they do, and what implications this has for their welfare, health, productivity and management.

Currently active projects are on the effects of subclinical inflammation on behaviour, play behaviour as improving as well indicating welfare, and differentiation and validation of welfare indicators.
