Validating refinements to laboratory animal housing


I am currently collaborating on a number of research applications on new methods of potentially assessing pain and distress.Outside of my research work, I am responsible for research project design and statistics, supervision of undergraduate, post-graduate and post-doctoral students.I am also responsible for research project design and statistics, supervision of undergraduate, post-graduate and post-doctoral students.I also provide general guidance and training in research methodology and statistics training.



Since joining Newcastle University I have been involved in further research improving the welfare of laboratory and companion animal species.I undertook a degree in Zoology at the University of Southampton in 1992, which lead to an MSc in Applied Animal Behaviour & Welfare at the the University of Edinburgh in 1995.During this time I developed an interest in animal welfare and behaviour.This initially lead me into research investigating the welfare of captive elephants in the UK.

Subsequently, I undertook a Ph D in Laboratory Animal Welfare at the University of Birmingham which included research into euthanasia, husbandry and housing of laboratory animals.

Developing methods for assessing and alleviating post-procedure pain and distress in a range of animal species, including rodents, rabbits, guinea pigs, dogs, cats, horses, pigs, sheep and primates.
