Georgios Pexas

I am a PhD student working on PigSys, an ERA-NET SusAn funded project which aims at improving European pig system performance through a whole system approach.

The objective of my study is to assess the environmental and economic performance of European pig systems using a life cycle assessment approach. We also aim to evaluate the efficiency of implementing novel in the housing and manure management technologies to reduce environmental impact. My supervisors are Professor Ilias Kyriazakis, Dr Stephen Mackenzie and Professor Michael Wallace (University College Dublin).
