I am a vet who previously worked in livestock and companion animal practice for five years, before completing a MSc in Veterinary Epidemiology and Public Health, and joining SRUC as a researcher in 2012. I am primarily based at SRUC Inverness, along with several other members of the CEPH team.

I am involved in a diverse range of projects as part of CEPH, including work on antimicrobial resistance, foodborne and zoonotic disease, biosecurity for small-scale livestock keepers, and more recently branching out into some teaching work. I get job satisfaction from seeing how the topics I work on can have application in real-world situations, particularly to the benefit of livestock and their keepers.

Away from work my family are a hugely important part of my life, and I enjoy spending time with them in the beautiful Highlands, where we live.
