She commenced her PhD studies at the same institution conducting a series of studies on sperm DNA integrity in relation to fertility in a variety of species using flow cytometry.

Her overall research theme is causes of and methods to improve suboptimal reproduction in livestock. She is particularly interested in andrology, with emphasis on genetic and environmental factors affecting reproduction. Her interest in semen and sperm quality has led to a number of publications in the field of sperm chromatin structure and seminal plasma protein in relation to fertility in domestic species. She has also been involved in the implementation of reliable, precise and accurate semen quality assays in both domestic animal semen laboratories and human fertility clinics.
