I defended my thesis Good enough? Animal welfare in organic poultry production in 2022. Whilst my research is mainly about poultry welfare in commercial production, I am more than happy to work also with cow and pig welfare. My interests include also animal ethics and sustainability aspects of animal production.
I am a veterinarian, and after graduation from SLU in 2016 I worked as a clinician with ambulatory veterinary services. Since 2019 I am enrolled as a resident at the European College of Animal Welfare and Behavioural Medicine (ECAWBM) sub-speciality Animal Welfare Science, Ethics and Law (AWSEL).
