My interest in parasitology started while studying Zoology at the University of Wales, which led to a PhD studying the electrophysiological responses of nematodes to chemosensory compounds. As a postdoctoral research associate, I was initially industry-funded, spent 2 years working as at Washington University School of Medicine in the USA, then worked at the University of Bristol on my return to the UK. Since then I have been Animal and Land Sciences Subject Group Leader at Hartpury University and College before moving to the University of Gloucestershire in 2012.
