Dr Stephen Mackenzie

Research Fellow in AMR in poultry supply chains (Argentina)

Background

I am an interdisciplinary specialist in modelling food systems - using both quantitative and qualitative methodologies to assess the sustainability of food production. I have extensive experience developing Life Cycle Assessment models of pig and poultry production systems and their environmental impacts, as well as developing tools to assess how these can be mitigated. My current research interests include the environmental impact of antimicrobial substances used in agricultural supply chains, as well as the consequences of genetic changes & precision livestock technologies for the sustainability of livestock systems.

I am a fellow of the Robert Bosch Postdoctoral Academy for Transformational Leadership 

Co-creator of the SHARE IT sustainability assessment toolkit for Food Sharing Initiatives - https://shareit.sharecity.ie/
