My research covers multiple topics with a general focus on health.
I have an ongoing interest in social attitudes and behaviours around antimicrobial resistance, and following my PhD research with pet-owners I have developed further projects looking at geographic variation in antibiotic-related behaviours.
Towards the end of my PhD I became interested in the social science of vaccine attitudes, with the intention of conducting research into the extent of parallels between human- and pet-related vaccine hesitancy. I am working towards this aim through my work on the VAX-TRUST project.
Another side-interest from my PhD was a broad interest in the veterinary profession. This interest led me to the Animal Research Nexus Programme, and also a successful bid for a British Academy Conference on the topic of veterinary expertise. This conference is taking place in July.
