I am a veterinary epidemiologist with interests in the dynamics, impacts and control of livestock diseases, particularly vector-borne diseases and zoonoses. I qualified as a vet from University of Liverpool in 2004 and after a stint in general practice moved to University of Edinburgh for a PhD at the Centre for Tropical Veterinary Medicine. My PhD focused on the epidemiology and ecology of vector-borne zoonoses in Tanzania. As a post doc at University of Glasgow I was involved with designing, implementing and coordinating field pro
jects, firstly on approaches to surveillance and secondly on endemic foot and mouth disease in Tanzania.
I started at SRUC in November 2011 as a research fellow with EPIC. I am predominantly involved in the following work areas:
I am a diplomate of the European College of Veterinary Public Health. I also continue to be involved in other projects on vector-borne zoonoses, both in Scotland (Lyme disease) and in Tanzania (trypanosomiasis).
