Meet Cambridge Global Food Security's Researcher of the Month: Erasmus zu Ermgassen

Erasmus trained as a vet, but after a short stint working on farms decided to move into academia to investigate livestock production at an altogether different scale. Currently in the final year of his BBSRC-funded PhD in Cambridge’s Department of Zoology, he has just returned from a three-month internship at the European Feed Manufacturers' Federation (FEFAC) in Brussels, helping policy advisors to understand and reduce the global environmental impact of livestock production.

Erasmus is a 2013 cohort PhD student in the BBSRC DTP Programme. He works in the lab of Professor Andrew Balmford at the University of Cambridge. As part of the DTP Programme he completed a rotation project with Dr Gianni Lo Iacono in the Department of Veterinary Medicine.
