Personal profile


Dr Kelsey Pool is currently a postdoctoral research fellow at the University of Western Australia, having completed her PhD in 2020 with the Animal Reproduction Group, The University of Sydney. Her research, at a nexus between science and Australia’s agricultural industries, aims to both contribute to a better mechanistic understanding of reproductive biology whilst providing tangible outcomes to animal production industries. Kelsey was recently awarded the Lefroy Fellowship, under which she is investigating the mechanisms behind “clover disease”, a syndrome in sheep where phytoestrogen exposure leads to both permanent and transient infertility.  Kelsey’s PhD research focused primarily on ovine reproductive seasonality; in particular, the neurohormone melatonin and how this could be manipulated to increase male reproductive efficiency and fertility outcomes. Her research has demonstrated the ability of melatonin to alter reproductive endocrinology and gamete production in the ram, resulting in the registration of a commercial Australian product to improve ovine reproductive efficiency.
