PhD Researcher in Human Geography (ESRC 1+3)
Geographical Sciences, University of Bristol

Start date: September 2015

Research topic: Antimicrobial Resistance

My PhD research focuses on the multispecies nature of the problem of antimicrobial resistance. My research explores pet owners’ beliefs about and use of antibiotics using a mixed-methods approach, with secondary analysis and a quantitative survey project complemented by qualitative approaches. I am also interested in the the methodology of survey research and how this affects opinion and attitude research in the context of antibiotic stewardship.
