Biografie

Anouschka Middelkoop is a PhD candidate at the Adaptation Physiology Group of Wageningen University & Research in the Netherlands (January 2016 - 2020), working on early nutrition (creep feeding) and the weaning transition in pigs. Her project aims to develop innovative strategies that stimulate early foraging and feeding activities in suckling piglets whilst promoting behavioural development, microbial colonization and concomitant maturation of the gastrointestinal tract and immune system (in collaboration with PhD candidate Raka Choudhury working at the Host-Microbe Interactomics Group). It is hypothesized that early foraging will accelerate the behavioural and physiological development of piglets, ensuring a better preparation for the weaning transition, and therefore will reduce weaning-associated health and welfare problems in piglets. She is supervised by dr.ir. J.E. Bolhuis.
