Dr. William de Glanville

Former Postdoctoral research associate


My PhD is a study of the epidemiology of human and animal brucellosis in western Kenya, with a particular focus on exploring ways in which we can attribute human cases of this important zoonotic disease to animal reservoirs. This work is in collaboration with the Kenyan Medical Research Institute (KEMRI) and the Friedrich Loeffler Institute (FLI), Germany.

I am a veterinarian (BVetMed(Hons), 2007) with an MSc in Veterinary Epidemiology from the Royal Veterinary College and the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (2008). Prior to joining the Zoonotic and Emerging Diseases group, I was employed as a research assistant in the Veterinary Epidemiology and Public Health (VEPH) group at the Royal Veterinary College (2008 – 2010), where I was mainly involved in a longitudinal study investigating the effectiveness of biosecurity in UK beef herds.
