Originally from Nowra in NSW, I managed my family dairy farm from 1985 to 1998. I completed my undergraduate degree in Animal Science in 2003 followed by a PhD in 2008 at the University of Western Australia. The focus of my postgraduate study was the identification of bioactive plants with the potential to manipulate rumen fermentation and their role in preventing lactic acidosis. I had been developing an interest in teaching and in 2005 undertook a teaching internship at the University of Western Australia. I subsequently tutored at the school of indigenous studies before taking up a position as associate lecturer at the school of Animal Biology at the same University. I taught into Applied Microbial Ecology 303, Ecosystems Processes 100, Animal Nutrition 301, Agricultural Microbiology 301, Animal Science 210 and Science and its communication 201. In 2008 I moved to Massey University where I currently lecture into the veterinary and agriculture degrees at the Institute of Veterinary Animal and Biomedical Sciences. I teach mainly in dairy production systems and ruminant nutrition.

Research Interest

Research interests in improving the efficiency of ruminant animal production and consequently greenhouse gas emissions from ruminants.
