Markos would like to contribute to the development of a sustainable animal production system that will be of benefit both to the Swedish farmers and agriculture in general. 

What background do you have? 

I am a licenced veterinarian from Aristotle's University of Thessaloniki (Greece) with a master’s degree in Animal Science from SLU. 

What previous experience do you have? 

I have worked in roles related to animal health such as veterinarian during an outbreak of Sheeppox in Lesbos (Greece) and a few months as a District veterinarian in Växjö, (Sweden). Additional to these roles, alongside my studies, I have worked as a research assistant both in Greece and Sweden. 

Why have you applied for this position? 

Working as a researcher focusing on animal nutrition, health and the environment is one of my life dreams and is the reason I decided to move to Sweden and study at SLU. This position allows me to fulfil my dream and at the same time contribute to the development of a sustainable animal production system that will be of benefit both to the Swedish farmers and agriculture in general. 

What are your hopes and expectations for your work in SustAinimal? 

Through SustAinimal, and specifically through the investigation of the role of animals in future food production I aspire to contribute to the development of knowledge and know-how and thus improve the sustainability of food production. Climate change raises the need for a more efficient, environmentally friendly, and resilient food production system. 

Why do you think this is important?

A sustainable and resilient food production system is a merit and a present for current and future generations. 

Why do you want to do this work? 

I believe it is my calling and an opportunity to contribute towards a more sustainable future.
