Eligible to supervise Masters and PhD - email supervisor to discuss availability.
Susan is Program Coordinator for the new BSc(Animal Behaviour) degree which commences in Semester 2, 2019. She teaches animal behaviour, welfare and ethics into the existing BSc(Animal Science) and BSc(Veterinary Bioscience) degree programs, and also animal welfare and profession ethics into the DVM program.
Susan has extensive community engagement through being a Board Member of the Dog & Cat Management Board of South Australia, and also on the South Australian Animal Welfare Advisory Committee. She also engages internationally through the Animal Welfare Guidelines group of the World Small Animal Veterinary Association (WSAVA).
Research interests include animal behaviour, relinquishment of pets, and public health implications of animal management (including dog attacks). Since 2007 Susan has supervised over 20 Honours students and 4 PhD students to completion. She has also supervised almost 20 DVM1 Clinical Research Projects.
