Profile

Having graduated from Bristol Veterinary School in 2016, I went into small animal general practice for 4 years. I developed a keen interest in research after completing a research Masters, as an intercalated degree, in veterinary parasitology while at Bristol. So in 2020 I began a PhD at Aberystwyth University using multi-omics approaches to try and improve understanding and diagnosis of tuberculosis in badgers and cattle. Focusing on using metabolomics and whole genome sequencing to study their microbiome. With a clinical background in small animal practice I am keen to also develop other projects, especially with the advent of the Aberystwyth School of Veterinary Science, and so in collaboration with the RVC I have been using metabolomics to assess feline clinical samples, initially focusing on hypertension.
