I have a B.Sc. in Parasitology from The University of Glasgow and a Ph.D. in 'Anthelmintic Resistance in Nematodes' from The University of Leeds. I came to AgResearch Grasslands in 1995 where I worked for seven years on livestock parasites, then had three years with the CSIRO in Central Queensland working on ectoparasites of cattle, before returning to Grasslands in 2006.
