Fiona graduated with an Honours degree in Zoology from Edinburgh University, then gained a PhD studying sheep scab mites at Moredun.

Fiona completed a postdoctoral position at the University of Edinburgh studying drug resistance in malaria before returning to Moredun to work on the management of anthelmintic resistance in sheep.

Fiona is currently interested in how different anthelmintic treatment strategies affect the development of anthelmintic resistance, and has been working on developing targeted treatment (optimised whole-flock treatments) and targeted selected treatment (treating only those individuals within a flock that will gain a benefit) strategies in sheep.
