Kelsey is a reproductive biologist by training and the current Lefroy Research Fellow. Before moving to Western Australia in 2020, Kelsey completed her PhD at the University of Sydney. Both her PhD and postdoctoral research focuses on translating the science underlying livestock reproduction into products that can be immediately applied on-farm. Her current research interests lie in the interplay between climate, diet and livestock reproduction, interventions during ewe gestation to improve lamb production and biological defleecing. Outside of research, Kelsey also co-manages a national livestock fertility testing business, The Reproduction Company, with her colleagues in the Eastern states.
