I am a researcher in livestock genetics and systems within the Animal & Veterinary Sciences Group at SRUC. Experience in animal breeding, genetics, modelling and biostatistics. Research interests include climate change and livestock systems (impacts, mitigation and adaptation), genetics of fitness traits, development of sustainable and environmental breeding goals and improvements to national genetic evaluations and understanding trade-offs/interactions in livestock systems. I also play a key role in the integration of discipline based sciences to address the global issues that face us.
