Quantitative EcologistDisease SystemsAnimal Veterinary Sciences
I am a quantitative ecologist in the Disease Systems Team, with main interests in:
My research covers both wildlife and livestock disease dynamics, at scales ranging from individual host and farm level risk, to metapopulations and national level drivers of outbreaks. I have particular interests in how climate change will affect parasite risk, and wildlife reservoirs of livestock pathogens.
I develop models of ecological and epidemiological processes using both mechanistic process-based approaches and GIS based correlative modelling, across multiple scales from individual hosts up to national levels. This theoretical modelling is complimented by experimental field work, with both approaches combining to improve understanding of disease dynamics, and inform long-term control strategies.
I am also an associate at Biomathematics and Statistics Scotland (BioSS).
