Open to PhD applications in the field of
- The detection and monitoring of infectious diseases
- The work encompasses the monitoring of farm animals for parasitic infections
- Develop detailed understanding of animal behaviour and to exploit these tools and data to determine infection status to inform disease management and control.
Additionally, we use advanced thermography as a tool for the early detection of key inflammatory conditions.
Public outreach & key achievements
- Significant and sustained engagement with global pharmaceutical companies engaged in the development of new drugs for parasite control.
- Substantial links across the veterinary practice and farming industry.
