Alongside her research, Emily’s passion is for helping students to develop into scientists capable of making a tangible contribution to the advancement of animal science and global food security.

Emily’s research mainly focuses on sustainable agriculture and food security, with particular interest in understanding interactions between feed materials and gastrointestinal environment.
