Lecturer in Epidemiology and Animal Behaviour, Faculty of Medicine & Health Sciences
Lucy joined the Nottingham School of Veterinary Medicine and Science in April 2010 as a Lecturer in Epidemiology and Animal Behaviour. Her main responsibility is to lead a five year research project on the epidemiology of guide dog behaviour.
Prior to joining the team at Nottingham, Lucy worked as a Research Associate in Quantitative Epidemiology and Animal Behaviour at the Royal Veterinary College. She undertook a PhD supervised by Dr Melissa Bateson at Newcastle University's Centre for Behaviour and Evolution (CBE Website). She holds an MSc in Animal Behaviour and Welfare from Edinburgh and a joint-honours BSc in Psychology and Zoology from Bristol University.

Fundamentally I am interested in taking a multi-disciplinary approach to the study of animal behaviour and welfare. Practically this primarily involves the application of mathematical methods such as epidemiological and statistical modelling, analysis of temporal structure and patterns in behaviour and agent-based modelling. I am also interested in the application of approaches borrowed from Psychology, Engineering, Physics and Economics.
Currently my primary research project concerns the epidemiology of guide dog behaviour. This 5-year initiative aims to understand the factors contributing to guide dog success and quality and to produce a reliable and valid behavioural profiling system.
I am also involved with a variety of other welfare and behaviour research projects concerning:
