Biography

My background is in agricultural economics with a strong specialisation in the economics of animal health, livestock production and livestock food systems. This interest was born at an early stage (from the age of seven!) working on the family dairy farm, milking cows, helping keep records of inputs and milk production and getting involved in the farm-level issues of general animal health and the bigger issues of ridding the farm of brucellosis and warble fly.

My first degree was in Natural Sciences at Cambridge University specialising in animal production and nutrition. My Masters in agricultural economics at the University of Reading was a two year course and involved a year's research at the Institute for Veterinary Biologicals and Animal Health in Bangalore, India. My research focussed on the smallholder dairy sector and the impact of endemic and contagious diseases in this region. I first saw foot and mouth disease, rinderpest and anthrax during this time. My time in India was initiated by Peter Ellis, and he and his wife supervised and inspired me during my year overseas. Their mentoring role has continued during my professional career.

On completion of my Masters I joined the Veterinary Epidemiology and Economics Research Unit (VEERU), University of Reading as a research fellow under the supervision of Andrew James. I developed and taught a livestock economics course on VEERU’s MSc programme and carried out animal health economics consultancies in Portugal, Turkey, Ethiopia, The Gambia, Zambia and Zimbabwe. I also completed my doctorate on the role of livestock in mixed farming systems of India and Kenya developing household and herd simulation models from the field data collected and this was examined by Alt Dijkhuizen.

In 1997 I joined a DFID funded epidemiology and disease surveillance project in Bolivia as the livestock economist. Over a period of three years the project made assessments of the livestock and marketing systems, the impact of the major livestock diseases and developed a strong surveillance network through the use of both formal and participatory methods. I learnt much in this time, particularly the need to collaborate with people in the livestock sector to implement livestock and animal health programmes. At the end of project in 2001, I established a consultancy company in La Paz, Bolivia implementing projects on livestock development and animal health both in Bolivia, in the Latin American region, Africa, UK and Nepal. I worked with a range of organisations such as FAO, EU, DFID, IICA, ILRI, DANIDA, GTZ and USAID.

In 2006 I joined FAO in Rome, Italy and became part of a global team dealing with the highly pathogenic avian influenza H5N1 threats. In my first year I spent considerable time and effort on the problems that Egypt faced with HPAI, and in the second year I took responsibility for the global FAO programme on socio-economics work for HPAI. The latter involved many visits to the Asia region providing inputs on the impact of HPAI, cost-effectiveness of surveillance and vaccination and the use of value chain analysis to refine and improve risk assessments.

I joined the Veterinary Epidemiology, Economics and Public Health Group at RVC in February 2009 as a Senior Lecturer and in January 2013 I was awarded the personal chair as Professor of Animal Health Economics. Since January 2014 I have held the Norbrook endowed chair in Veterinary Business Management.
