Dr Helen Gray


I currently work with Prof. Lisa Collins as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow on the PigSustain Project, with a focus on modelling the relationships between health, welfare and production parameters for farmed pigs.  Prior to this I completed my PhD at Newcastle University in 2016 investigating the impacts of fluid restriction protocols on laboratory primates and refinements to their use. 


Research interests

Broadly, I am interested in the study of animal behaviour as a measure of animal welfare and methods of statistical modelling.
