  • Biography/ Background

    Lucy is an Associate Professor in Veterinary Pathology. Following graduation from Murdoch University, Lucy spent two years working in a mixed clinical veterinary practice in the Mid North of South Australia. In 2005 she returned to Western Australia to pursue interests in conservation and health of Australian wildlife, undertaking a PhD examining the pathological, aetiological and epidemiological aspects of a debilitating viral-associated skin cancer in the endangered Western barred bandicoot (Perameles bougainville). Following the PhD, Lucy left the sunny shores of Western Australia to undertake a residency in Veterinary Anatomic Pathology at the Royal Veterinary College, London, and the Animal Health Trust in Newmarket, England. This residency, funded by The Horse Trust, enabled a focus on the health and disease of horses. In September 2010, Lucy completed the certifying examinations of the American College of Veterinary Pathologists. She joined the University of Adelaide’s School of Animal and Veterinary Sciences in November 2010.
