My research focuses on the epidemiology of bTB in British cattle. I utilise network analysis methods to explore cattle movements in Britain and how they relate to disease transmission. My PhD is an industry CASE studentship sponsored by the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council and the Animal and Plant Health Agency. I graduated as a veterinary surgeon from the Royal Veterinary College in 2010 and have worked in large and small animal practice and in the pharmaceutical industry before starting my PhD in 2015. My main research interests are infectious diseases in livestock, veterinary epidemiology and animal welfare.
