Senior Lecturer in Animal Health & Welfare
Dr Lisa Morgans is a qualified veterinarian that has worked with a variety of animals from horses, dogs & cats to cattle and sheep, before settling on specialising in farm animal work. She gained her PhD from the University of Bristol in 2019, where she worked with Professor Kristen Reyher in the AMR Force group . Dr Morgans’ PhD explored how a participatory, farmer-led approach can help dairy farmers reduce their reliance on antimicrobials and what lessons this can teach us about knowledge exchange and farmer-advisory interactions. She became trained in facilitation and qualitative research methodologies and went on to win the Antibiotic Guardian Awards for research in 2019. After a brief jaunt in New Zealand working with vets and farmers across North and South Island on medicine stewardship, Dr Morgans joined Innovation for Agriculture (IfA) – an independent knowledge exchange charity that aims to bridge the gap between science and practice. As part of IfA, Lisa has worked on multi-institute, multi-actor projects as part of Horizon Europe on topics such as, animal health, antimicrobial stewardship and farm demonstration. She has also contributed e-learning modules to a variety of courses on sustainability and medicine use, and delivers training to advisors across the industry in facilitation.
