Biographical Information

Based at the Hopkirk, one of my focuses is to develop vaccines that control tuberculosis in cattle and possums, and Streptococcus uberis bovine mastitis. My team is also developing ways to reduce the amount of methane gas produced by ruminants and is evaluating immune stimulants.

Following several years in veterinary practice, I commenced a career in animal disease research which has spanned more than 30 years. I attained a Bachelor of Veterinary Science from Massey University and completed post-graduate studies at Otago University (Diploma of Microbiology) and Virginia-Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine, USA (PhD in microbiology).

My research studies have focused on the development of vaccines for a wide range of infectious diseases of large animals including bovine tuberculosis, bovine mastitis, yersiniosis and viral diseases.

I'm a co-inventor of Yersiniavax that controls yersiniosis of deer and have developed tests for the diagnosis of tuberculosis in cattle. I share a patent on an oral bait tuberculosis vaccine for wildlife.
