Scientific Expertise: Agriculture related to animal husbandry, dairying, livestock raising, animal welfare; Sustainable production; Animal Health Economics and Management
Contribution: As a young researcher, to examine how biosecurity practices should be done for the sustainable production of enterprises. To observe the contribution of the results to the economic efficiency of the enterprises. To follow how biosecurity practices can differ for livestock economics and animal health economics.
Motivation: One of my subjects of study is the economics of production in farm animals. On the other hand, biosecurity is a critical issue in the farm production economy. As a result of the study, biosafety applications and economic cost and benefit analyses attract my attention.
Scientific Background: I did my Ph.D. in animal health economics and management. The primary study subjects of the related field are production economics and health economics. For example, cost-benefit analysis of different care and feeding methods to be applied in the production process of farm animals. I am a young researcher working on the effects of other diseases on animal production, economic losses caused by diseases, financial comparison of the methods to be applied in the treatment process, and cost-benefit analysis of the ways to be followed in the fight against epidemic diseases. At the same time, I am doing my second doctorate in veterinary physiology.
