I am a vet and a veterinary epidemiologist. I have extensive experience in general practice and in project leadership, management and delivery within both research and surveillance environments. I have a broad spectrum of experience from simple to complex epidemiological field projects, quantitative and qualitative analyses, risk assessments in a number of subject areas and have worked with a variety of inter-disciplinary teams and for a range of funders. I have also been involved with the provision of advice and recommendations to policy colleagues at the science-policy interface and the science-regulatory interface.

My research interests are the provision (i.e. delivery) of good, robust and relevant epidemiological science that meets the needs of those commissioning the research, be it policy-makers or industry, and the translation of that science into practical and feasible options, or actions, that can make a difference, within the boundaries and constraints encountered in everyday life.
