Andrew Conroy

Andrew Conroy, a professor of animal science and sustainable agriculture and food systems in the Department of Agriculture, Nutrition, and Food Systems, has taught at the University of New Hampshire (UNH) since 1990. Dr. Conroy’s specialty is cattle, but he has global experience with other livestock, animal handling, and applied animal behavior. He has conducted research in Africa, including research with pastoral people in Tanzania and Namibia. Dr. Conroy spent 2008 in Namibia and 2016 in Rwanda as a Fulbright Scholar. While abroad, he investigates organizations where UNH students could do internships or supervised research in wildlife management and wildlife conflict. He has worked with many UNH undergraduates conducting research abroad, including projects with cheetahs, elephants, and black rhinos in Africa and with koalas in Australia. By reaching out to a former UNH student who had also studied in Scotland, Dr. Conroy helped Amber find her research site at the University of Edinburgh. Encouraging his students to publish their research in Inquiry is yet another way in which Dr. Conroy helps them acquire valuable skills for their future careers.
