Dr Orla Shortall

Agricultural Social Scientist

I am an interdisciplinary social scientist working on decision making and governance in agricultural systems. I use qualitative methods including interviews, participant observation and workshops, and quantitative survey methods. I’m interested in understanding change within agriculture: how change happens at the level of individual farms and sectors more widely. Within EPIC I’ve worked on the BVD eradication scheme, AI and sheep scab.
