    About Charles Deeming

    I studied for my PhD at the University of Reading followed by a postdoctoral Research position studying the effects of temperature of sex and development of Alligator mississippiensis at the University of Manchester. Thereafter, I worked in a bird zoo, for a commercial incubator manufacturer and on an ostrich farm. Prior to joining the University of Lincoln I was a self-employed consultant top the poultry industry. I joined the University of Lincoln as a casual hours lecturer and gained a permanent position in 2007.
