Sustainable Agriculture Sciences
Jamie's key areas of interest are veterinary/agricultural microbiology and policy, particularly pathogens and antimicrobial resistance (AMR) within sustainable agricultural systems. He is currently working on characterisation of microbial cycling within all aspects of the livestock production systems at the North Wyke Farm Platform, having previously completed research studies relating to: livestock infection resistance genetics; AMR development in agriculture; AMR in wildlife; sustainable animal health, genetics and nutrition in East African livestock. Jamie also has experience as a veterinary/agricultural policy advisor at SRUC, Scottish Government and DEFRA (APHA).
The current project will identify gains in whole system sustainability targeting key points in the on farm microbial cycle. This will allow stakeholder benefits in production efficiency to be made alongside safeguarding public and animal health. This approach will engage beyond traditional research horizons to microbiology, agronomy, economics, geo-biochemistry, and all that can provide reciprocal metrics on health and production.
