Integrating innovative TECHnologies along the value Chain to improve small ruminant welfARE management

TechCare’s people: Theo Kriszt!

Hi! I studied Computer Science and Electronic Engineering in Montpellier, France. During that time, I spent several internships working on embedded devices and information platforms to help monitor and study animal movements and behaviors in extensive and pastoral environments at SELMET joint research unit (Montpellier, France). This led me to join INRAE after my studies as a design engineer where I was in charge of developing a sensor-to-user liaison system and web UI for an automated electronic oestrus detection in sheep. In my spare time you can generally find me tinkering with salvaged electronic parts and 3D printers in a floating scent of coffee. I just started my PhD thesis in October 2021 under the co-supervision of Eliel González-García and Jean-Baptiste Menassol, on the development of a digital tool as the basis of a decision support system for grazing management in (agro)pastoral livestock farming systems. It will be an opportunity to pursue my interests in PLF tools, the search of new, connected solutions for farming but also grow alongside the TechCare project and its rich consortium.
