Personal profile


My PhD is "Communicating science effectively to UK veterinary surgeons". I am self-funded.

I have had a long-term interest in domestic rabbit health and welfare. Having worked across many different industries during my career so far, including teaching, I have developed an understanding of how effective communication can have an impact on outcomes. My goal is to use this knowledge in order to improve links between research and practice to improve rabbit welfare.
