I am currently the product development manager at Fish Vet Group.
Previously I was the Aquatic Animal Disease expert within the Environment and Animal Health group at Weymouth and team leader for the Population Health and Welfare team.
I have over 20 years experience in histopathology of non-mammalian aquatic animals and in parasite taxonomy and ecology.
