Dr Sarah Preston
Lecturer, Federation University
I have a passion for research and education in the control of infectious diseases in agricultural animals and this is largely driven by my background growing up in a rural setting on a sheep/cattle farm. Following on from a science degree at Monash University I completed a PhD investigating the control of parasitic worm infections in sheep. From 2014-2016 I worked at the Faculty of Veterinary Sciences at the University of Melbourne as a postdoctoral researcher in the area of drug discovery for parasitic diseases. As of 2017, I joined Federation University as a lecturer in Veterinary Biosciences and an active researcher in the area of worm control for agricultural/companion animals.
