Louise is a postdoctoral researcher in the Veterinary Epidemiology, Economics and Public Health Group (VEEPH). She currently works on a project investigating sustainability in British sheep and beef food systems and is part of the Interdisciplinary Food Systems Teaching And Learning team
Louise graduated from the University of Bristol with a BSc in Animal Behaviour and Welfare. In 2019 she completed a PhD in epidemiology and microbiology that was interested in increasing our understanding of mastitis in sheep and developing strategies for its control. This has led to her interest in agriculture, livestock health and welfare and its links to sustainble food production, and interdisciplinary approaches to tackle questions.
Louise's research include inter- and transdisciplinary methods to understand more about sustainability in the beef and sheep food and marketing systems in Great Britain. She is particularly interested in animal welfare and integrating this into her research. She is also interested in the food system and systems thinking being an active member of the Interdisciplinary Food Systems Teaching and Learning (IFSTAL) team.
