About me

I am a board certified veterinary pathologist and fish vet with extensive experience in aquatic animal health and disease investigation. My research focuses on emerging infectious disease processes within aquatic ecosystems, predominantly fish and marine mammals. I am particularly interested in studying the land-sea transfer of bacteria and parasites and the emergence of pathogens in aquatic vertebrate hosts subjected to wider ecosystem disruption.

 I qualified as a vet in 2002 from Toulouse, shortly before completing a Master’s degree in Aquatic Veterinary Studies at the University of Stirling. Throughout my career I have worked for two fish veterinary practices in Scotland, providing support to the Scottish aquaculture industry, completed a 3 year residency in veterinary pathology at the University of Edinburgh and a PhD in marine mammal pathology between the Sea Mammal Research Unit at the University of St Andrews and the Moredun Research Institute, Edinburgh in which I investigated infectious disease prevalence in Scottish grey seals with particular emphasis on environmental microbial pollution using genomics.
