Dr Kristen Reyher
Senior Lecturer in Farm Animal Science
BSc(Florida), DVM(Cornell), PhD(UPEI), MRCVS
Kristen Reyher is a Senior Lecturer of Farm Animal Science at the School of Veterinary Sciences, University of Bristol. She has worked in livestock practice in three countries, and holds a doctorate of veterinary medicine from Cornell University as well as a PhD in veterinary epidemiology from the Atlantic Veterinary College in Prince Edward Island, Canada.
Kristen currently leads an interdisciplinary research group (the AMR Force) focussed on antimicrobial resistance as well as directs the first studies applying a counselling style called Motivational Interviewing to veterinarian-client communication. Kristen was the principal investigator for the Global Resource for Online Evidence-based Veterinary Medicine Learning project which produced the widely used EBVM eLearning site ebvmlearning.org, and is involved in EBVM on many levels. Her past accomplishments include successfully organising the data collection platform for Canada’s largest livestock research effort through the Canadian Bovine Mastitis Research Network and she is interested in making research more accessible (and accomplish-able) to veterinary practitioners worldwide.
Kristen Reyher earned a Bachelor of Science in Zoology from the University of Florida, followed by a Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from Cornell’s College of Veterinary Medicine. After spending four years as a private livestock practitioner in SE England, she relocated to Prince Edward Island, Canada, where she taught at the Atlantic Veterinary College and organised the Canadian Bovine Mastitis Research Network’s extensive mastitis data collection. Kristen earned a PhD in mastitis epidemiology in 2012, and currently lectures on diseases affecting production animals, epidemiology and evidenced-based medicine. Her research interests are seated in the epidemiology of production animal diseases as well as motivations to change management factors that affect their spread. She is also interested in the interplay between human and animal medicine and One Health, particularly as it pertains to antimicrobial resistance.
