Irene Camerlink supported our team 2018-2020. 

Her main focus was the behaviour and welfare of pigs. Observing the behavioural abnormalities and welfare problems in practice on a global scale had been a strong driver to keep searching for ways to improve health and welfare through providing a scientific base for potential solutions. Interdisciplinary research combining animal- and social sciences had hereby played a key factor, with interdisciplinary work being essential to apply science into practice. Other research interests were (positive) social behaviour of pigs, neurobiology, behavioural genetics, homeopathy, conflict behaviour and brain lateralization.
