Kieren has been a collaborator on several projects conducted in northern Australia. Currently, Kieren is a principal investigator of a federally funded project with the aim to quantify the impact of wild dogs on cattle production, and how this interacts with their management as well as exploring the value adding potential of surplus to breeding requirement cows supplying a northern Australia abattoir. Kieren was a project team member in the Cash Cow project, a regional manager of the NT/WA region and was heavily involved in the analysis of data and project management. Kieren is also familiar with systematic approaches to the capture, management and aggregation of animal performance data so that they can be used to make better or more informed management decisions.
