Camilla is a vet and PhD student working on the projects "Antibiotic usage on dairy farms in GB: improving data capture and exploring drivers" and "Assessing social acceptability and economic impact of centralised antibiotic usage data collection for GB cattle farms"
Camilla graduated from the Royal Veterinary College (RVC) as a veterinary surgeon in 2009. She completed an internship at Sussex Equine Hospital in 2011 and continue to work in equine practice until 2014. In 2015, Camilla obtained a Masters in Epidemiology from Imperial College, London, after which she joined the Epidemiology team at the Animal Health Trust, Newmarket. Here, her focus was on the surveillance, management and control of equine disease outbreaks, advising both vets and industry. In October 2017, she joined the Veterinary Epidemiology, Economics and Public Health research group at RVC as a PhD student.

The aims of this PhD were to determine the accuracy of antibiotic usage data being recorded by dairy farmers on farm, identify factors influencing accurate recording, assess the drivers and barriers to record and share such data and to explore the economic cost of recording. Antibiotic usage (ABU) has become recognised as the main driver for the selection and spread of antibiotic resistance (ABR) within the human and livestock sectors.
