About Me

I am a researcher with an interest in contributing to a 'One Health' appraoch of tackling zoonotic diseases through an improved understanding of the ecology of domestic and wild animals.

During my PhD at Exeter University, I studied the social and spatial ecology of free-ranging dogs in rural Africa, with the aim of informing intervention strategies for canine mediated diseases such as rabies and Guinea worm. Due to the recent COVID-19 pandemic my attention has turned to more human focused research, and I am currently working (remotely) for Leeds University, on a project investigating the risk factors for healthcare workers contracting COVID-19 in the hospital.

You can read more about my academic career in the 'Research' page of this website, and you'll find more general natterings of my interests on my blog.
