Personal profile


I joined the Aberystwyth School of Veterinary Science as a Lecturer in Veterinary Science (Anatomy and Physiology) in June 2023. 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 metagenomics 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 and renal urolithiasis. As well as screening samples from dogs with intervertebral disc disease for metabolic changes, in collaboration with Cambrdige Veterinary School.
