Postdoctoral Research Fellow

Bryony is a postdoctoral research fellow studying the interactions between cattle pest and parasite management, beneficial insect biodiversity and pasture ecosystem function in livestock systems. She was at the University of Bristol in the UK for 11 years before coming to Vermont to work with the Gund Institute in October 2021. Her research aims to bring together farmers, vets and researchers to co-develop inclusive and socially relevant strategies for the future of food and farming.

With the Gund Institute and UVM Extension Bryony will be working on collaborative farmer-led projects to investigate the impacts of regenerative agricultural practices and Integrated Parasite Management (IPM) for livestock, on beneficial insect biodiversity, soil health, ecosystem function and pest and parasite regulation.
