Ina is a Lecturer in Precision Agriculture in the NZCPA, Massey University.
Prior to joining Massey University Ina was a lecture at Hartpury College, University of West of England, UK where she led the BSc Animal Behaviour and Welfare programme. Her research interests concentrate in the area of animal management, behaviour and precision farming.
In recent years, Ina has focused on the use of emerging precision tools to track and monitor livestock and the use of aerial imaging systems in pasture management. The scope of her research centres on how environmental factors affect animal behaviour and how we can successfully use emerging precision tools to track and monitor these and better manage grazing and intensively farmed animals.
