I have a passion for research and education in the control of infectious diseases in agricultural animals and this is largely driven by my background growing up in a rural setting on a sheep/cattle farm. I received my science qualifications (B.Sci Honours) at Monash University and followed on with a PhD investigating the control of parasitic worm infections in sheep using immune markers of parasitic resistance. From 2014-2016 I worked at the Faculty of Veterinary and Agriculture Sciences at the University of Melbourne as a postdoctoral researcher in the area of drug discovery for parasitic diseases. I am now looking forward to my new career direction as a lecturer for the Bachelor of Veterinary and wildlife sciences at Federation University Australia whilst still pursuing research in the area of worm control for agricultural animals.
