Personal profile

Overview

I am a lecturer in Animal science, with a specialism in zoonotic diseases in animals. My passion for this topic, had led me to present at conferences throughout the world, including delivering key-notes speeches. In 2020, I co-organised CampyUK goes global, a virtual conference for those researchers with an interest in the foodborne pathogen Campylobacter spp. 

I obtained a BSc in Food, Nutrition and Consumer Protection from BathSpa University College (2001), a MSc in Meat Science and Technology (2003) and a PhD in Microbiology (2009) from the University of Bristol. Prior to my PhD, I worked for the Health Protection Agency in a busy laboratory. Post PhD, I undertook Postdoctoral positions at the University of Bristol (2009-2015) and Swansea University (2015-2020) before taking a lectureship at Hartpury University in 2020.

Current teaching

I teach across all levels of undergraduate provision, including Foundation.  The modules I lead include Animal Health and Disease, Pathology, Microbiology, Animal Disease and Epidemiology. I am also the second year tutor on the BSc Bioveterinary Science programme. 

I have supervised many Undergraduate and Master's students projects to completion. I have also supervised PhD students to completion. I currently supervise 3 PhD students, 2 of whom are funded by Industry. 

Research interests

My research focuses on the foodborne pathogen Campylobacter species. I am interested in host-pathogen interactions including the immune response, interventions particularly dietary additives as a method of control, extra-intestinal spread and whether or not Campylobacter is a commensal or pathogen of broiler chickens. I also have an interest in gut health of chickens and many other animals and microbial animal diseases.
