My main research interests involve the integration of behavioural, physiological, neurophysiological and statistical techniques to investigate animal welfare issues, primarily in laboratory rodents. Specific areas of interest include pain, animal affect and the development of novel methods to assess welfare and affective state. I am currently a post-doctoral research associate focused on finding a humane alternative to carbon dioxide euthanasia for laboratory rodents.
Project topics I have worked on include: animal welfare, laboratory rodents, pigs, rabbits, rodent handling refinements, euthanasia, stress, anxiety and depression, pain, analgesia, play behaviour and social network analysis.
Grants and Awards listed are those received whilst working with the University of Glasgow.
