BSc MBA Phd FRES
After a BSc in Zoology at the University of Durham (1981) and a PhD in insect population ecology at the University of Liverpool (1985), I started post-doctoral research at the University of Bristol in 1985. Initially I joined the Tsetse Research Laboratory where for 4 years I worked on the behaviour of tsetse in sub-Saharan Africa. In 1989, I moved to the epidemiology group within Department of Veterinary Science to study the ecology and management ovine myiasis. In 1992, I was awarded a Royal Society University Research Fellowship and moved to the School of Biological Sciences. I was appointed as Professor of Zoology in 2000. I now teach entomology and parasitology to biology and veterinary undergraduates and postgraduates and head a research group which works on a wide range of ectoparasites of veterinary importance, particularly ticks, flies, lice, mange mites and flies. Our research ranges widely from fundamental studies of taxonomy and physiology, through to field population ecology and farm-level investigations of the application of sustainable control technologies.
