Animal and forensic parasitology

Our research into animal parasites and their vectors helps 

  • veterinarians
  • fisheries biologists 
  • diseases of farmed animals (including cultured fish) 
  • wild caught animals used for food or at risk from disease
  • forensic scientists

We are studying

  • fly-borne diseases such as myiases helping livestock farmers
  • the developmental stages of meat eating fly species for forensic science
  • how to identify parasites of wildlife for food producers, zoos and aquariums
