Biografie

Inonge Reimert studied at the University of Groningen. She obtained her MSc degree in Behavioural Cognitive Neurosciences in 2009 (with honours). Thereafter she did a PhD at Wageningen University to investigate the behaviour and physiology of pigs divergently selected for indirect genetic effects on the growth of their pen mates. In addition, she also studied emotional states in pigs and she was the first to discover that pigs have emotional contagion, a simple form of empathy. This research was part of the project ‘Seeking Sociable Swine? Incorporating social genetic effects into pig breeding programs to achieve balanced improvement in productivity and welfare’. The results of this PhD project have been presented in the thesis “(Em)pathetic pigs? The impact of social interactions on welfare, health and productivity”.

Presently, Inonge is working as a Postdoctoral researcher at the Adaptation Physiology Group of Wageningen University. She is actively involved in teaching and supervising MSc and BSc students with their thesis. She is interested in pig behaviour, emotions and welfare and therefore involved in various different projects.
