Project Title: Modelling GHG in farm systems and influence of feed management decisions
Overview: I am Latifa from Morocco. I am an agronomist engineer specialized in animal production engineering and animal breeding. My working experience and research interests are focused mainly on dairy cattle and sustainable livestock production.
My PhD project is dealing with Modelling of GHG in farm systems and influence of feed management decisions; it is under the frame of the project Capturing Effects of Diet on Emissions from Ruminant Systems (CEDERS) that aims to align national agricultural GHG inventory and mitigation research across an international consortium of 9 countries. Working in this international project is a huge opportunity for me to broaden my knowledge in this area of research. I see myself in the future pursuing investigation in this promising field.
In free time, I like to discover new places and hiking. I also find practicing yoga and meditation as a good way for relaxing and improving the quality of life.
