Personal profile

Teaching

I am a module leader, lecturer and member of Prgramme Management Team on the Applied Animal Science degree course. I have recently completed the Postgraduate Certificate in Tertiary & Higher Education.

I am motivated to improve accessibility of online blended learning and as a SRUC digital mentor I am very happy to share what I've learnt about the technology we use to enhance teaching activities. I am also a member of the SRUC academic board and am interested to hear about any ways we can improve our work.

 

Research interests

I am a physiologist with experience in molecular microbiology and immunology. I have extensive experience validating and developing novel laboratory assays especially multiplex such as fluorescent microsphere immunoassays (FMIA) and xTAG nucleic assays. I have particular interest in disease and impacts on animals, antimicrobial resistance (AMR) and reproductive health. 

I am committed to reproducible and open science and am continually trying to improve the sustainability of work within the laboratory. I helped set up and managed to Biomarkers Lab, which facilitates laboratory-based research for SRUC staff and students as well as external clients.

Supervision

I have trained and facilitated projects for 6 Undergraduates, 5 Masters students, 8 international students, 11 PhD students and 7 Postdocs (some international) on a variety of laboratory techniques and research projects.
