ISES 14th Equitation Science Conference
Professor Michela Minero
Michela qualified as a DVM, got a PhD in Animal Science, and currently works as an associate professor at the University of Milan, Department of Veterinary Medicine. She is a member of the European College of Animal Welfare and Behavioural Medicine. Horses and donkeys have always represented a genuine passion for her and she found hard to choose between a career as a clinician and the curiosity about equine behaviour. She is still interested in researching topics where the two areas may be combined. She has mainly been working in the area of animal behaviour and welfare: her areas of particular professional interest include assessing animal welfare in relation to their management characteristics, developing innovative equine welfare indicators and human-horse interactions.
