Dr. Davies is a veterinary epidemiologist specializing in infectious diseases of food animals, particularly swine. His professional experience includes several years of clinical practice; government regulatory work; 2 years as a livestock advisor on an international development project in Brazil; and senior academic positions in swine medicine (Leman Chair of Swine Health and Production, University of Minnesota) and veterinary public health (MAF Professor of Food Safety and Public Health, Massey University, New Zealand). Dr. Davies’ research focus is on the epidemiology of zoonotic and foodborne pathogens, including antimicrobial resistance, at the farm level. This research advances the understanding of relationships between the farm environment and its management that influence the occurrence of infectious agents, including assessment and mitigation of the associated risks to animals and people.
