University Lecturer in Ornithology & Senior Biology Tutor St. Catherine’s College
 

Tom Pizzari studies sexual behaviour and its evolutionary implications, using the chicken as a model species.

His work on the fowl, Gallus gallus- (otherwise known as the chicken), combines experimental work with physiological and molecular tools.

His research into the sexual behaviour of chickens contributes towards improved animal welfare and the management of fertility and disease transmission in food animals.
