Assistant Secretary (2017-2019)
Fiona completed her Ph.D. from The University of Edinburgh and SRUC in 2009 in dairy cow feeding behaviour. She then went on to do a 2-year postdoc at the Prairie Swine Centre in Canada, specialising in sow housing. Fiona was particularly interested in how we can optimise the housing design of farm animals to improve animal welfare. Since 2011, Fiona had been living with her family in Yucatan, Mexico and continued to work remotely for the Prairie Swine Centre and the National Farm Animal Care Council (NFACC) of Canada. Most recently, Fiona had been working remotely as a Research Fellow for the Jeanne Marchig International Centre for Animal Welfare Education at the University of Edinburgh investigating the priority animal welfare issues in the U.K.
