Lecturer in Applied Entomology and Parasitology, Faculty of Science
Ruth Blunt obtained a BSc (Hons) in Environmental Conservation Wildlife Management and Biology from Nottingham Trent University. She then completed an MSc in Environmental Management and PhD from The University of Nottingham. She then spent a year working as a Post-doctoral researcher on a knowledge transfer project at The University of Birmingham before moving back to Nottingham to join the School of Veterinary Medicine and Science in 2007.
Ruth Blunt is a Lecturer in Applied Entomology and Parasitology at the School of Veterinary Medicine and Science. She is involved with teaching Veterinary Parasitology, particularly Ectoparasitology, in the year 1, 2, and 3 modules.
I am currently working on a project to characterise the invertebrate communities present on UK pig farms and to assess the potential of these invertebrates to act as vectors of disease.
I have a long standing interest in insect communities and agro environmental work. I have conducted a wide range of insect survey work including projects for the Game Conservancy Trust to assess the impact of set aside covers on game and song bird food sources. During my PhD I worked on invertebrate communities within oilseed rape crops to assess the impact of an altered glucosinolates profile on various pest and beneficial species.
