    Associate Professor in Physiology and Animal Production David Miller
    BSc (Agric) Hons, PhD

    Academic / Researcher

    About me

    I graduated with a BSc with Honours in Agricultural Science from the University of WA (1991), and then completed a PhD in Animal Science, also at UWA.  I then travelled to the UK on a Wellcome Fellowship for a 2-year postdoctoral position at the Reproductive Biology Unit of the Medical School at Edinburgh University. I remained in the UK where I spent 8 years lecturing and researching in the field of production animal physiology.  This was mainly at the School of Biological Sciences at the University of Aberdeen, but also at the Scottish Agricultural College (SAC), and the Rowett Institute.

    My research interests include the physiology and environmental control of reproduction, behaviour, welfare, appetite and body weight regulation in domesticated animals. Specific research interests include: 1) effect of various stressors on behaviour, welfare and production; 2)  improving goatmeat production and eating quality; 3) impact of maternal nutrition and stress on fetal and postnatal development; 4) central pathways involved in the nutritional control of appetite, energy balance and reproduction; 5) gonadal development and function in the fetus

    I teach Physiology and Animal Production in the Veterinary, Biomedical, Animal Science and Medicine (Notre Dame) courses.

    Teaching area

    I teach Physiology and Animal Production in the Veterinary, Biomedical, Animal Science/Health and Medicine (Notre Dame) courses. Topics I cover include endocrinology, reproduction, appetite control, environmental physiology, welfare, equine behaviour & physiology, and scientific communication skills.

    Research areas

    My research interests include the physiology and environmental control of reproduction, behaviour, appetite and body weight regulation in domesticated animals. Specific research interests include: 1) effect of various stressors on behaviour, welfare and production; 2)  improving goatmeat production and eating quality; 3) impact of maternal nutrition and stress on fetal and postnatal development; 4) central pathways involved in the nutritional control of appetite, energy balance and reproduction; 5) gonadal development and function in the fetus.

    Some current research projects include: 1) welfare assessment in transported animals working with industry and funded by Meat & Livestock Australia (MLA); 2) association between temperament in the feedlot and beef quality working with industry and MLA; 3) on-farm assessment of sheep wellbeing working with the Sheep CRC; 4) nutritional methods to minimise stress in weaned pigs working with Australian Pork Ltd (APL) and the Pork CRC; 5) management of rangeland goats working with MLA; 6) improving goatmeat eating quality working with MLA; and 7) behavioural, physiological and pharmaceutical studies related to camel milk working with a local producer DromeDairy https://dromedairy.com.au
