Senior Lecturer in Veterinary Pathology, University of Sydney

I am a veterinarian with over 25 years specialising in zoo and wild animals. I am a Member of the Australian and New Zealand College of Veterinary Science in the Medicine of Australian Wildlife, and have a PhD focussing on conservation genetics, particularly interactions between disease resistance and genetic diversity.

Apart from lecturing in Veterinary Pathology, Veterinary Anatomy, Animal and Veterinary Biosciences, Biology, and Wildlife Health and Population Management at the University of Sydney, I continue my interest in wildlife diseases and conservation through my roles as Vice President and Head of Health of the Wildlife Assistance and Information Foundation and leading pre-veterinary projects in Thailand and South Africa for the International Student Volunteers organisation.

My research interests include population management of captive and free-ranging kangaroos, necrotising diseases in possums, pharmacodynamics of antibiotics in possums and koalas and neuro-angiostrongylosis in wildlife, pets and humans.
