Lorcan Carnegie is a PhD Candidate on the BBSRC-funded LIDo DTP programme who is using both real-time genetic sequencing and phylodynamic tools to investigate the transmission and diversity of RNA viruses that pose a serious risk to human and animal health. He is supervised by Dr Sarah Hill, Dr Guillaume Fournié, and Prof. Nicola Lewis.
Lorcan achieved a MSci in Biological Sciences from UCL in 2020, where he carried out an undergraduate dissertation on pathogen-host interplay in human Tuberculosis, and a masters project on mito-nuclear coevolution in D. melanogaster. In late 2020, Lorcan started the LIDo DTP programme, joining Dr Sarah Hill's group in 2021. Lorcan is a contributor to the UKRI GCRF One Heath poultry Hub (https://www.onehealthpoultry.org/).

With integrated streams of social, economic, biological, mathematical and policy-led research, we are co-producing detailed knowledge on the biological, structural and socio-economic factors that shape networks of chicken production and distribution. The RVC-led UKRI GCRF One Health Poultry Hub brings together leading laboratory, clinical, veterinary and social scientists, as well as skilled communications experts, programme support staff and external stakeholders.
