Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Ecology
  • Animal science

Sandra Edwards mainly investigates Animal science, Welfare, Straw, Animal-assisted therapy and Veterinary medicine. Her Animal science research incorporates themes from Pregnancy, Environmental enrichment and Polyunsaturated fatty acid. The concepts of her Welfare study are interwoven with issues in Animal husbandry, Quality, Animal welfare, Livestock and Environmental economics.

Her Straw research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Factorial experiment, Food science, Dietary fibre and Lameness. Her biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Once daily and HUBzero. Her work carried out in the field of Veterinary medicine brings together such families of science as Weaner pigs, Leg weakness and Substrate.

Her most cited work include:

  • Perinatal mortality in the pig: environmental or physiological solutions? (213 citations)
  • Factors influencing aggression between sows after mixing and the consequences for welfare and production (190 citations)
  • Investigating the behavioural and physiological indicators of neonatal survival in pigs (190 citations)

What are the main themes of her work throughout her whole career to date?

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Animal science, Welfare, Veterinary medicine, Animal welfare and Litter. Her Animal science research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Factorial experiment, Animal-assisted therapy, Lactation and Straw. Her work deals with themes such as Breed and Purebred, which intersect with Lactation.

Her Welfare study incorporates themes from Animal husbandry, Public economics, Environmental health, Agricultural science and Organic farming. In general Veterinary medicine study, her work on Herd often relates to the realm of Tail-biting and Udder, thereby connecting several areas of interest. Her Litter study frequently draws parallels with other fields, such as Birth weight.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Animal science (45.28%)
  • Welfare (18.87%)
  • Veterinary medicine (17.92%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2013-2021)?

  • Animal health (10.38%)
  • Animal science (45.28%)
  • Law (6.84%)

In recent papers she was focusing on the following fields of study:

Her primary areas of investigation include Animal health, Animal science, Law, Listing and Animal species. Her work carried out in the field of Animal science brings together such families of science as Veterinary medicine, Birth weight and Lactation. Her biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Breed and Welfare.

Her Welfare research includes themes of Public economics, Scale, Agricultural science, Livestock and Organic farming. The study incorporates disciplines such as Weight gain and Factorial experiment in addition to Weaning. Her research integrates issues of Pig farming and Environmental health in her study of Animal welfare.

Between 2013 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Implementation of machine vision for detecting behaviour of cattle and pigs (71 citations)
  • Using machine vision for investigation of changes in pig group lying patterns (56 citations)
  • Automatic detection of mounting behaviours among pigs using image analysis (45 citations)

In her most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Internal medicine
  • Ecology
  • Disease

Her main research concerns Animal science, Veterinary medicine, Welfare, Artificial intelligence and Litter. Her specific area of interest is Animal science, where Sandra Edwards studies Weaning. Her research in Veterinary medicine intersects with topics in Animal slaughter, Incidence and Bursitis.

The concepts of her Welfare study are interwoven with issues in Public economics, Animal welfare, Agriculture, Livestock and Risk analysis. Her Artificial intelligence research incorporates themes from Simulation and Computer vision. Her research investigates the connection between Litter and topics such as Colostrum that intersect with problems in Heritability and Growth retardation.
