I am an Associate Professor in Veterinary Parasitology at University of Nottingham. I earned my PhD from Michigan State University in 2004. In 2005 I was awarded the American Society for Microbiology/National Center for Infectious Diseases Postdoctoral Fellowship. In 2011, I became a Diplomate of the European Veterinary Parasitology College. I am a member of ESCCAP-UK, a Fellow of RSPH, a Fellow of HEA. My current research focuses on host-parasite interaction and anti-parasitic drug discovery.
