About the Department

The Herd Management group currently consist of six people, and is expanding. The areas of expertise within the Herd Management group is, most notably, multivariate and multilevel monitoring of time series data relating to production animals. These data can be collected with sensors or from other means, e.g. serological test results. Furthermore, the group is focused on advanced post-processing of the monitored data for purpose of early warning and/or detection of specific events related to the production animals, such as outbreak of disease or onset of farrowing. Lastly, expertise within deep learning and machine vision, applied to problems within animal production, is in the process of being built up within the group.

Project description

This PhD project will be part of a Horizon 2020 project entitled “Data-driven control and prioritisation of non-EU-regulated contagious animal diseases” (DECIDE). It is a collaboration project with 19 partner institutions in eight European countries and is led by Utrecht University in the Netherlands. The purpose of this PhD project is to contribute to the development of algorithms and models for monitoring respiratory and gastro-intestinal diseases in the three most important terrestrial livestock species (pigs, poultry, cattle) and on growth reduction and mortality in salmonids, an important aquaculture species. The focus of the PhD project is to build multivariate and multi-level models for creating early warning systems.
