Main Research Interests

I am broadly involved in research and development of improved genetic evaluation procedures and industry application for Australian beef cattle. My current research is focused on developing enhanced evaluation of reproduction traits enabling genomic selection that will drive increased rates of genetic improvement, particularly in tropically adapted breeds.
