EDIA Officer (2021-2025)
I am an animal behavioural scientist, specialising in horse behaviour and welfare, with a research focus on equine nocturnal behaviour and sleep. My recent work has examined methods of measuring sleep behaviour, and factors affecting it in domestic settings. I am also interested in abnormal repetitive behaviour and equine cognition. As the Head of Inclusivity at Hartpury University, I have overseen policy and strategy pertaining to equality, diversity and inclusivity since 2016. I am also the Education Liaison Officer for the BAME Equine and Rural Activities Focus Group, and hope to bring this expertise to the role of ISAE EDIA officer.
