Personal profile


I am a research writer for Supporting Evidence Based Interventions in Livestock (SEBI-L), at the Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies, University of Edinburgh.  I qualified as a veterinarian in 2006 and gained extensive experience in clinical practice in the UK, Australia and South Africa, working in first-opinion and welfare practices.  I obtained a PhD in infection and immunity from the Roslin Institute, studying East Coast fever at the livestock-wildlife interface in northern Tanzania.  My research interests are in global animal health, especially in low- and middle-income country settings, epidemiology, animal health systems, public health, One Health, and welfare, and I am interested in capacity-building, collaboration, outreach, and policy and advocacy. 

I am currently a reviewer for the Human Ethical Review Committee (HERC), R(D)SVS.

Current Research Interests

My current work involves assessing livestock mortality and the dairy sector needs in Ethiopia, although I am involved in writing up several projects within the SEBI-L group.
