Personal profile

Research interests

Animal Health Economist with work focused on the economics of animal health and welfare, prevention and control of animal disease.  In collaboration with colleagues from SRUC and other institutes, I am developing frameworks for cost benefit and economic welfare analysis that can be applied to future disease scenarios. My work focusses on the application of these methods to a number of diseases in dairy and beef cattle in Scotland and the UK. In additon, my research focuses on farmer behaviour in response to disease control options and antimicrobial resistance.  I would like my work to contribute to a better integration between economics and epidemiological research in the field of animal health and welfare.
