University of Edinburgh, United Kingdom


I am the Chief Scientific Advisor for Food Standards Scotland and hold a personal chair in Microbial Genetics (since 2006) at the Roslin Institute, University of Edinburgh where I lead an Institute Strategic Programme on the ‘Control of Infectious Diseases in Livestock’.  My training is as a Microbiologist with a degree and PhD from Newcastle University, followed by research positions in Michigan & North Carolina. After a Medical Research Council Fellowship (1994-98), I obtained a Lectureship in Bacteriology at Edinburgh Vet School and then a Veterinary Fellowship to study the biology of enterohaemorrhagic E. coli (EHEC) O157 in cattle working in partnership with scientists in the UK and around the world. My main current research interests are around predictive genomics, phage therapy and bacterial gene regulation.
