Dr Harriet Auty

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:

  1. Disease outbreak response such as risk assessment, contingency planning
    and provision of scientific advice
  2. Liaison with policy makers at
    Scottish Government
  3. Veterinary surveillance and 
  4. Providing veterinary and epidemiological input for models of disease.

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).
