Areas of expertise I am a member of the Animal Welfare and Behaviour research group. I am interested in the welfare of working horses and donkeys in India and Pakistan and the welfare and productivity of cattle and goats in East Africa, including differences by breed and the factors pre-disposing pigs to developing tail-biting. I'm aslo interested in the analysis of multi-level data, including sample size calculations.
