Dr Konstantina Linardopoulou
- McIntyre International Research Fellow (Physiology Ageing & Welfare)
My research revolves around multidisciplinary investigations at the intersection of veterinary science and engineering. I am committed to advancing animal welfare, mainly focusing on issues related to mobility and lameness, with dairy cows as a primary area of study. Using radar-based automated systems and machine learning algorithms, I aim to detect animal welfare issues, thereby promoting ethical and sustainable farming practices.
