Eligible to supervise Masters and PhD (as Co-Supervisor) - email supervisor to discuss availability.


I am a zoo/avian/exotic pets veterinarian and researcher. I have particular interests in surgery, pharmacology and physiology in a wide range of species. I believe that science can help inform collection managers of best husbandry practices and wildlife managers of best conservation practices.
