Thirty years’ experience in research and research management around livestock intensification and the roles of livestock in mixed farming systems. Specific research interests in systems simulation modelling, crop-livestock interactions (synergies and trade-offs) and farming systems evolution for sustainable intensification. Extensive project management experience in both research and service delivery. Recently appointed to the advisory board of the USAID Sustainable Intensification Innovation Laboratory (Kansas State University).

My vision of success for collaborative research is that it is collaborative and not directive (should be obvious, but how many really are?) and integrated not fragmented.
