I am a veterinary epidemiologist at the International Livestock Research Institute in Nairobi, Kenya. I studied veterinary science at the University of Sydney and did my PhD in epidemiology at the University of Edinburgh. I have 20 years professional experience, 10 years as a clinician and 10 years as a researcher. My area of expertise is the epidemiology of diseases at the wildlife-livestock-human interface. My current research includes One Health projects investigating zoonoses in people and livestock, intervention trials for novel vaccines in livestock, and veterinary public health projects to reduce food borne disease and occupational exposure to zoonoses. I have research projects in Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda.
