I am primarily interested in how climate influences the epidemiology of parasitic infections in animals, and in applying this understanding to help manage parasites and reduce their impacts on health, production and population viability. Specific areas include:

- Building and testing predictive models of parasite infection patterns in grazing animals

- Selective intervention against parasites in livestock to support production and livelihoods

- Parasite transmission at the wild-domestic interface

- Lungworm and ascarid infections in dogs, cats and wild canids

Open to PhD applications from those having at least a 2.1 degree (or equivalent) in a biological or veterinary subject, especially those who are interested in understanding the fundamentals of parasite transmission is different contexts and applying that understanding to enhance control options open to animal keepers and managers.
