Imogen recently joined the RVC as a Research Associate in Social Science & Modelling. She is currently working on a project entitled "Breeding for better broiler welfare: balancing sustainability, economic and consumer preferences".  The overarching aim of this project is to provide a comprehensive analysis of the impacts of, opportunities for and barriers to shifting UK poultry production towards slower-growing broiler breeds, by addressing knowledge gaps and extending existing information.

Imogen graduated from Oxford Brookes University in 2018 with a BA in Philosophy and went on to complete a MSc in Primate Conservation. Following this, in 2022, Imogen completed her second MSc in Food Policy at City University. Her dissertation looked at how the concept of positive pig welfare could be operationalised in the context of an EU-wide animal welfare labelling scheme. 

Imogen's research interests include sustainable food systems, animal welfare and 'One Health'.
