Kate Douglas-Dala joined the HE team in 2006 after completing a PGCE and an MSc at Aberystwyth University. Her MSc thesis focused upon factors affecting follicular diameter in mares and was published by Theriogenology in 2010. Kate’s subject specialisms include equine parasitology, nutrition, health and welfare.
Kate, who plays a key role in the supervision of undergraduate research projects, said: “I encourage our undergraduates to forge links with industry sponsors and to share their research at equine science conferences. One of our greatest accolades was winning the Equine Undergraduate Thesis of the Year competition in 2012.”
