Dr Anna Garber

  • Research Technician (Veterinary Science & Education )
  • Demonstrator (School of Life Sciences)

Biography

I am a passionate researcher and a horse addict. I have joined School of Veterinary Medicine, University of Glasgow in 2014 as an international exchange intern and have started my PhD in Equine Nutrition shortly after that. I have been working as a GTA (Graduate Teaching Assisstant) and Demonstrator in Biology, Histology, Anatomy, Reproduction and Nutrition, OSCE assessor, marker, tutor and invigilator for the School of Veterinary Medicine and School of Life Sciences in 2016-2019. 

  • PhD Animal Health (2015-2019, University of Glasgow, UK)
  • EM-SANF Erasmus Mundus Master in Sustainable Animal Nutrition and Feeding (2013-2015, Wageningen University, Netherlands)
  • MSc Animal Sciences (2013-2014, University of Debrecen, Hungary)
  • EURAMA European Animal Management (2013-2014, University of Purpan, France)
  • Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (2006-2012, State Agrarian University of Moldova, Moldova)

 


Research interests

My PhD was focused on using supplements to manipulate bacterial communities in the equine gut under stress conditions, such as high starch diets and abrupt changes in the diet. My research aims to improve health and welfare of the horse by studying the tools to keep microbial populations stable and avoid negative effects of stress factors. I have been also involved in studying the effect of diets on equine behaviour; examining the effects of feeding regime on circadian rhythm and activity of the horse; investigating the effects of feed processing as a tool to increase energy utilisation and digestibility of feedstuffs for horses.
