    Research Interest 1

    My research interests are in the application of quantitative epidemiological studies to improve animal (and indirectly human) health and welfare. The majority of my research is in equine and companion animals and particular areas of interest include antimicrobial resistance and zoonosis, athletic injury in horses, colic in horses and health and welfare of working equidae in developing countries.
