Dr Darren Green
Lecturer
I am interested the ecology of disease, how diseases spread from place to place, why particular populations are more at risk than others, and how we can control and prevent disease outbreaks. My research is focussed on the epidemiology of fish diseases, however I have a continuing interest in terrestrial farming systems.

Dr Dave Morris
Senior Research Fellow
I am interested in the control of diseases that affect cultured fish species. My research has principally focused on the myxozoan parasite Tetracapsuloides bryosalmonae which infects a wide range of salmonids such as rainbow trout, Atlantic salmon, Arctic charr and brown trout.

Marleen Werkman
PhD Student
I started my PhD in October 2008. I am looking at the contact structure between and within sites of the Scottish aquaculture industry, and I am going to construct a network model. These models can help us to understand and predict the transmission of disease between and within sites.

Dilok Wongsathein
PhD student
I am a PhD student at Institute of Aquaculture, University of Stirling since 2008. My research topic is Streptococcosis (e.g. S. agalactiae and S. iniae) in tilapia which mainly related to microbiology and histopathology. In order to explain about pathogenesis in the fish is what relationship between age and bacteria as age susceptibility which is supervised by James Turnbull, and Margaret Crumlish.
