My research interests have primarily focused on the use of yeast as a feed additive in the finishing of beef cattle, and the development of molecular tests for detecting anthelmintic resistant liver fluke (Fasciola hepatica) in cattle and sheep. I am currently working alongside research group (also based in IBERS, Aberystwyth University) and Aberystwyth University's Commercialisation Services in order to make these molecular tests commercially available.
I am the animal science teaching fellow for the Advanced Training Partnership (ATP), based in Aberystwyth University. ATP is a flexible postgraduate programme providing workshops and distance learning modules to people working with and within the UK's beef, sheep and dairy supply chains. The programme, which is a partnership between IBERS, Bangor University and NIAB, develops and delivers training which both meets the needs of industry and incorporates research findings from the partners.
