Relevant career highlights

I completed two post-doctoral posts in veterinary immunology and microbiology, but I have spent the past 16 years in the animal health vaccine industry working on vaccine formulation and analytics, and latterly new product development with several major pharmaceutical companies.


I enjoy running and cycling, both on road and on local forest trails; walking my dog; cooking; and reading.
