Biography

Personal Statement

I obtained my BSc in Environmental Sciences from the University of East Anglia (1996-1999), focusing on population and community ecology, public health and statistics. Following a Research Assistant post in Northern Italy, my PhD studies began in 2000 in the Wildlife Epidemiology group at Stirling University. I was a Staff Epidemiologist at the Pirbright Laboratory, working predominantly on scrapie and atypical scrapie including being co-investigator on several large Defra grants. Here, I also taught quantitative skills to staff and students, and became seconded in 2006 to Veterinary Clinical Sciences at the University of Liverpool (UoL). In 2008 I became an Advanced Healthcare Scientist in the NW Regional office of Public Health England, before taking up a PDRA role at UoL, running the Enhance project under Prof. Matthew Baylis. At UoL, I have held several Co-Investigator roles funding further development of the Enhanced Infectious Diseases database (EID2), and in 2012 took a central role leading implementation on the Integrate project under Prof. Sarah O’Brien. In 2014, I was Co-Applicant on the EU Cost funded Network for Evaluation of One Health, UK Management Committee Member and joint lead for work on the environmental dimension of One Health, including leading development of a chapter describing this in the recently published book “Integrated approaches to health: a handbook for the evaluation of One Health” ISBN 978-90-8686-3242). In 2018, I joined the HORN project to lead development of the One Health Training Curriculum. For 2019-20, I am President of the Society of Veterinary Epidemiology and Preventive Medicine.
