Reader in Veterinary Parasitology, University of Bristol

I am interested in the dynamic interaction between host and parasite populations, and its manipulation to achieve sustainable control. Applications include the practical diagnosis, epidemiology and control of parasites of veterinary importance, especially helminths. Current research priorities are:

Surveying camel parasites in Kazakhstan

Migration and parasite transmission in the saiga antelope, Saiga tatarica (with Imperial College London)
Grazing patterns and parasitic disease in livestock

Mathematical models as tools for the sustainable control of helminths in domestic animals

The epidemiology of wildlife disease, and parasite transmission at the wildlife-livestock boundary

Further information about the insect ecology and veterinary parasitology research group can be found on our website.
