Veterinary EpidemiologistFuture Farming Systems - Epidemiology Research Unit
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 projects on disease surveillance and endemic foot and mouth disease in Tanzania.I am based in the SRUC Epidemiology Research Unit in Inverness. My work focuses on two main areas. I work on outbreak response, contingency planning and science-policy liaison for EPIC – the Scottish Government’s Centre of Expertise on Animal Disease Outbreaks. I also work on epidemiology of vector-borne diseases including trypanosomiasis in Tanzania, and Lyme disease in Scotland.
