After graduating from the University of Liverpool, with an MSc in Veterinary Parasitology, I firstly worked in mixed animal practice in the UK. I have also been involved with various clinical, research and knowledge exchange livestock projects in Latin America, North and sub-Saharan Africa. I then went on to complete a part-time PhD in tropical epidemiology with the Roslin Institute. The 3.5 year project was based in Cameroon investigating parasitic and zoonotic diseases of cattle reared by pastoral herdsmen and small holder dairy farmers. After working as a livestock clinician at the University of Glasgow, gaining Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy, I returned to Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies in 2016.
I am currently a lecturer in Farm Animal Practice at the R(D)SVS, where I continues to combines my interests in population medicine and understanding the impact of livestock infectious diseases to impliment sustainable control programs.
