Member of ESCCAP UK & Ireland


Honorary Senior Lecturer in Parasitology, Department of Infection Biology & Microbiomes Institute of Infection, Veterinary & Ecological Sciences, University of Liverpool

I completed my PhD at the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine where I worked for 30 years in diagnostic medical and veterinary parasitology. I moved to the school of Veterinary Science in 2008. My research interests are the biology and control of parasitic arthropods - principally flies, ticks and mites - as agents of skin infestations and vectors of disease. I have more recent interests in parasitic lungworms of companion animals, zoonotic helminths of wildlife and in forensic entomology, a pathology-related veterinary specialism of the Liverpool School of Veterinary Science. I am an author of some 70 publications. I have been a member of ESCCAP UK & Ireland since 2004.
