Personal profile

Personal profile

Following the completion of my MSc in Animal Science at Wageningen University in The Netherlands, I came to England to pursue a PhD in Equine Science, which was sponsored by Spillers Horse Feed and Hartpury College. The title of my PhD was “The effect of diet and management on the behaviour and activity of riding school horses” and allowed me to combine an interest in equine behaviour and nutrition. Whilst in the final stages of my PhD, I started teaching in Higher Education Equine, focusing my teaching around various relevant topics, including equine nutrition, behaviour, reproduction, and genetics, as well as biochemistry, anatomy and physiology and generic academic skills. In August 2015 I joined University Centre Hartpury as a Senior lecturer, focussing my teaching interests more around equine nutrition. I am also a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.
My main research interests focus on equine nutrition, investigating links around perception of energy requirements and body condition, and the impact of diet on behaviour, health and welfare of the horse. As a result, I have had various papers published around these topics and presented at national and international conferences including International Conference on Equine Exercise Physiology, European Workshop for Equine Nutrition and the Equine Health and Nutrition Congress. I am to work closely with industry to ensure that research aims to educate owners and industry further in our knowledge around equine nutrition and engage students in the process of publishing or presenting research that they have been involved with.
