Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Bacteria
  • Genetics
  • Internal medicine

Her primary areas of study are Mastitis, Herd, Somatic cell count, Udder and Microbiology. Her Mastitis research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Animal science and Cephalosporin. Her Herd study contributes to a more complete understanding of Veterinary medicine.

In her study, Staphylococcus aureus and Subclinical mastitis is strongly linked to Epidemiology, which falls under the umbrella field of Somatic cell count. In her research, Subclinical infection and Lactation is intimately related to Culling, which falls under the overarching field of Udder. Her biological study deals with issues like Coagulase, which deal with fields such as Staphylococcus simulans, Staphylococcus chromogenes, Staphylococcus xylosus and Staphylococcus cohnii.

Her most cited work include:

  • Invited review: Mastitis in dairy heifers: Nature of the disease, potential impact, prevention, and control (248 citations)
  • Prevalence and distribution of mastitis pathogens in subclinically infected dairy cows in Flanders, Belgium. (148 citations)
  • Some coagulase-negative Staphylococcus species affect udder health more than others. (140 citations)

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

Her primary areas of investigation include Mastitis, Somatic cell count, Animal science, Udder and Herd. Her Mastitis study combines topics in areas such as Veterinary medicine, Dairy cattle, Antimicrobial and Staphylococcus aureus. Her Somatic cell count research also works with subjects such as

  • Coagulase, Staphylococcus xylosus, Staphylococcus simulans, Staphylococcus cohnii and Staphylococcus haemolyticus most often made with reference to Staphylococcus chromogenes,
  • Andrology most often made with reference to Immunology.

Her Animal science research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Ice calving, Lactation and Milk yield. The Udder study combines topics in areas such as Milking, Subclinical infection and Agricultural science. The concepts of her Herd study are interwoven with issues in Odds ratio, Incidence, Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae, Predictive value and Risk factor.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Mastitis (42.59%)
  • Somatic cell count (31.48%)
  • Animal science (29.01%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Mastitis (42.59%)
  • Somatic cell count (31.48%)
  • Animal science (29.01%)

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

Sofie Piepers mainly investigates Mastitis, Somatic cell count, Animal science, Herd and Lactation. To a larger extent, she studies Microbiology with the aim of understanding Mastitis. Her Somatic cell count study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Staphylococcus chromogenes, Udder and Multifactorial disease.

Her Animal science research incorporates themes from Predictive value and Ice calving. Her Herd research focuses on subjects like Feces, which are linked to Colonization and Staphylococcus hominis. Her research investigates the connection between Lactation and topics such as Milking that intersect with problems in Dairy industry and Marketing.

Between 2017 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Characteristics of Escherichia coli Isolated from Bovine Mastitis Exposed to Subminimum Inhibitory Concentrations of Cefalotin or Ceftazidime (115 citations)
  • Phenotypic and genotypic characterization of antimicrobial resistance profiles in Streptococcus dysgalactiae isolated from bovine clinical mastitis in 5 provinces of China. (11 citations)
  • Investigation of differential somatic cell count as a potential new supplementary indicator to somatic cell count for identification of intramammary infection in dairy cows at the end of the lactation period (10 citations)

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

  • Bacteria
  • Genetics
  • Pathology

Her main research concerns Mastitis, Lactation, Herd, Animal science and Somatic cell count. Her work in Mastitis addresses issues such as Antibiotics, which are connected to fields such as Staphylococcus aureus. Her Lactation research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Milking and Mixed model.

Her Herd study incorporates themes from Dairy cattle and Predictive value. Sofie Piepers studied Predictive value and Gold standard that intersect with Udder. Her Ice calving research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Staphylococcus chromogenes and Subclinical infection.
