Research Interests

James Babbitt’s research explores the role of automation, robotics, artificial intelligence, and algorithms in the dairy industry, with a particular focus on how these developments are affecting rural masculinity, family life, labour, expertise, and interspecies care. Focusing on the development and design of new technologies in the Netherlands and their application across the globe, James aims to trace how international agribusinesses are transforming what it means to work with animals and the soil in the 21st century.
