Jude is a professional officer in the Livestock systems branch at Armidale beef industry centre. She has been working on ‘The host control of methane in sheep’ project, funded by Department of agriculture, fisheries and forestry (DAFF) and MLA. The key objective of this project is to expand our knowledge of aspects of digestive function associated with phenotypic variation in methane emission. Prior to this Jude ran a small business called ‘Tread Lightly’ focused her interest in natural resource management.

Whilst working for AgResearch Ltd in NZ Jude managed a 3 year investment to develop proteomic capabilities based at Victoria University of Wellington. In this role she provided a protein identification service and contributed to projects funded by meat and wool NZ and OVITA.

We also lead the proteomic component of the Rumen functional genomics program. Jude brings over 20 years’ experience researching the function of proteins in various cells related to medical and agricultural science projects. These include a PhD in wool biology, studies in meat science and postdoctoral positions in the CRC- diagnostic technologies.
