I joined the University in 2005 after a 16 year career in Zoo Animal Management. I worked with a variety of stock and gained a great deal of experience in animal husbandry. For the majority of my time in zoos I specialised in Elephants and Primates and helped lead one of the country's most successful training and breeding programs for Asian Elephants, at Whipsnade Wild Animal Park, where I finished my zoo career.  

I have worked at Cockle Park Farm for the past 9 years and have been primarily responsible for supporting all of the pig related research work that has taken place over that time.
