Projects per year
I specialise in livestock microbiome research, with a particular interest is in the impact of early life events on the complex interactions which exist between the neonatal gut microbiome and developing immune system. I am experienced in next generation sequencing techniques, bioinformatics and biostatistical analyses of metagenomic data. Current projects include; describing interactions between helminths and the microbiome in sheep and horses; measuring the impact of prebiotics on gut microbiota and immune function in horses; and the development of the microbiome in wild versus captive herbivorous primates. I was recently appointed as Research Community Lead in Infection, Inflammation and Immunotherapy at Bristol Vet School.
