I am a human geographer experienced in examining human-animal relations as situated practice (i.e. how and why surrounding social, cultural and environmental circumstances produce particular kinds of encounters and interactions across species boundaries), and have been at the forefront of developing innovative mobile and video methodologies to understand socio-material worlds in practice, including interrogating at cross-species dynamics in conservation conflicts. I am new to EPIC this year and will be working in Topic 2 (2.4.1 `Understanding Attitudes to Biosecurity`). In this I will be designing video ethnography techniques to look at the biosecurity practices of cattle farmers with respect to Bovine Viral Diarrhoea (BVD). This will include comparing the visual assessments practices of beef and dairy farmers.
