Stewart is a researcher at the Moredun Research Institute and the main area of his research is the development of novel methods of disease control and diagnosis for the ectoparasitic mite Psoroptes ovis. Part of his current research, funded by DEFRA, involves mapping the host response to infestation with P. ovis elucidating the signalling pathways involved with a view to identifying novel methods of intervention and discovering potential vaccine candidates for disease control. He is also the current president of the Easter Bush Research Consortium (EBRC) Postdoctoral Society.
