Biography

After two and a half years working in practice in sunny Cornwall, I have now embarked on a PhD in reducing antimicrobial use on UK dairy farms through a participatory approach. It will enable farmers to solve farm specific issues in a colaborative group way, with the aim of informing policy at the end of it.
