Reader in One Health, University of Liverpool & Jointly Appointed Principal Scientist, ILRI

Siobhan is an interdisciplinary researcher and epidemiologist with a dual background in veterinary medicine and public health. Her research intersects with the areas of global health security and tropical medicine, often (but not exclusively) from a One Health perspective. 

A Fellow of the Australasian College of Tropical Medicine (ACTM), Siobhan has held academic appointments at Tufts University School of Medicine in the US (Assistant Professor, 2009-2011), The University of Sydney School of Veterinary Medicine in Australia (Senior Lecturer, 2012-2018) and the University of Liverpool Institute for Infection, Veterinary and Ecological Sciences in the UK (Reader, 2018 to present). She is currently based at the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI) in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, where she holds a joint appointment.

Siobhan has more than 15 years operational experience promoting One Health approaches, with an emphasis on capacity building and translating theoretical concepts into practical implementation, particularly in the African context. This includes: as global health advisor for the RESPOND project (part of USAID’s Emerging Pandemic Threats program) which aimed to strengthen capacity for response to emerging diseases in disease “hotspots”; as Research Lead for the Ethiopia hub of the HORN project which aimed to strengthen capacity for One Health research in the Horn of Africa region; as ILRI-PI for the HEAL project which aims to strengthen human-animal-rangeland health service delivery in pastoralist areas of Ethiopia, Kenya and Somalia; and the COHESA project which aims to increase uptake and adoption of One Health solutions in eastern and southern Africa.
