Louise has just completed a PhD in epidemiology and microbiology at the University of Warwick 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 interdisciplinary approaches to tackle questions. She is currently working as a post-doc at the Royal Veterinary College on a project that is investigating sustainable and healthy beef and sheep food systems in Great Britain.
The outcome of this interdisciplinary and systems thinking project, they hope, will aid in identifying more sustainable British beef and sheep production and marketing systems in a changing environment.
