Abdul Shakoor Chaudhry
Abdul Shakoor Chaudhry has conducted research, teaching and engagement at universities of Newcastle, Queensland, Bristol, Cambridge and Faisalabad. He was able to develop non-invasive Bio-Molecular methods to test the quality of animal foods in supplying essential nutrients to various animals at different stages of their growth and development. Dietary manipulation to reduce pollution from farm animals has also been a vital area of his research. He has coordinated 2 International training programmes in Australia (1996-98) and 3 Higher Education Links here at Newcastle (2002-5 & 2007-10). Recently, his research with \'spices to modify methane\' has received a huge media attention. His invited interviews with CNN\'s Connect the World, BBC Look North, many BBC radios, Newzealand radio and many print and electronic papers are a few examples of the impact of his research. Search INTERNET for \'sheep and spices\' to view 100\'s of news items as a reflection of the societal & sustainable relevance of his research for the UK and worldwide.
