Biography

Roger began his university career at Liverpool University, studying Biochemistry.

He graduated with a 2.1 Honours degree in 1975, and immediately committed himself to a further five years studying Veterinary Science, also at Liverpool, graduating in 1980.

He spent eight years in mixed practice in South and West Wales before joining a biotechnology company as the named veterinary surgeon, supervising the raising of antibodies in sheep for use as human pharmaceutical products.

He then started work as a Veterinary Investigation Officer at Carmarthen Veterinary Investigation Centre in 1990 where he worked for the next 25 years.

During his time at Carmarthen VIC he developed an interest in chlamydial infections and later fasciolosis.

He has presented oral and poster presentations both at UK and international veterinary and scientific conferences.

He was a member of a working group in an EU funded project studying fasciolosis for two years entitled DELIVER.

He has published peer reviewed papers on fasciolosis, tuberculosis in goats and tick-borne diseases.

Roger currently works part time at the Wales Veterinary Science Centre in Aberystwyth, continuing his role as a farm animal pathologist and mentoring three other veterinary investigation officers.
