Research Interests

My research interests are generally in the field of farm animal welfare science. In particular, I am interested in the (further) development of all kinds of practical applications that can contribute to improving the welfare of farm animals. Currently I am working on a project on mother-bound rearing of calves in dairy farming, especially the reduction of weaning stress when cow and calf have to be separated later.
However, I also like to deal with positive animal welfare indicators, animal welfare assessment in general, animal transport, stereotypies, calf rearing in general, and I have also worked on a project on the marketing of boar meat. Privately, I am also interested in the interactions of agriculture and climate change and am a member of the specialist group Agriculture/Nutrition of Scientists for Future Germany.
