Nik Palevich

Senior Scientist

New Zealand

I am a Senior Scientist and early career researcher within the Rumen Microbiology team at AgResearch Ltd. based at the Grasslands campus in Palmerston North. The main threads of my research are aimed at understanding diverse microbial ecosystems to identify strategies and applications to enhance plant, soil and animal productivity coupled with a reduced environmental footprint. My expertise lies in utilising classical microbiology in combination with sequence-based and functional approaches to empower the study of complex microbiomes. In particular, investigating the processes that underpin microbial fibre degradation in the rumen and development of next-generation methane inhibitor strategies.
