Biographical details

Dr Victoria Brookes is a research fellow at the School of Veterinary Science, the University of Sydney. After graduating from the University of Edinburgh, Victoria worked in veterinary general practice in the UK and Australia. She completed her PhD at the University of Sydney in 2014 on exotic disease risks to the pig industry in Australia.Since then, her research has focused on northern Australia and Papua New Guinea, where she has been investigating the risks and impacts of a canine rabies incursion to inform preparedness strategies.
