Martyna Lagoda, PhD

Postdoctoral Research Fellow

Dr. Martyna Lagoda holds a B.A. degree in Science, Zoology, and an MSc degree in Animal Behaviour and Welfare. Following the completion of her PhD in Sow Welfare at Teagasc, Ireland, in collaboration with the Institute of Genetics and Animal Biotechnology, Poland in 2022, Martyna worked as a research technologist on the “Tail Bite Advice” project in Teagasc, aiming to develop algorithms to accurately monitor tail biting behaviour and to create a data-driven PLF decision support tool that will actively advise farmers on how to reduce tail-biting occurrences. As a Zoologist, Martyna is interested in welfare as a broader concept, and in a range of species. One of her main research interests includes using behaviour to gain insights into welfare states, as well as developing housing environments that promote species-specific behaviours. As a Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Saskatchewan, Martyna will continue to work towards improving the welfare of swine.
