Prof Dr Matthias Gauly received his Diploma in Agricultural Science, and a doctorate in Animal Science and Veterinary Medicine at the University of Gießen between 1987 and 1997. He completed a postdoctoral lecture qualification in Animal Science and Husbandry in 2002. His professional and scientific career started as a scientific assistant at the Center for continental agriculture research and the Institute of Animal Breeding and Genetics at the University of Gießen. Afterwards, he worked as an Assistant Professor at the same institute until Gauly became the Associate Professor for Livestock production systems at the Department of Animal Science at the University of Göttingen in 2003. Currently, he is Full-Professor for Animal Science at the Faculty of Science and Technology at Free University of Bolzano.
Between 1982 and 2012 Prof Dr Gauly gathered a lot of research experience abroad, for example in Togo, Kenia, USA, Scotland, Peru or Thailand. He is a member in various editorial or scientific boards like the “Journal of Camel Practice and Research”, the “Journal of Society of Animal Production” or the scientific PhD of the German Federal Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Consumer Protection – amongst many others.
