Dr. Torben Nielsen
With a background as a veterinarian and training in epidemiology and veterinary public health, I have broad research interests. These include health and welfare of production and companion animals as well as wildlife. Human-animal bonding are also included in the mix.
Recent projects include cat management in collaboration with local councils and research into dog bite victim risks (watch this space for papers) and trade of wildlife.
Currently, I am an adjunct senior lecturer in veterinary public health at the University of Adelaide and a diplomate in population medicine with the European College of Veterinary Public Health. In addition to training veterinary students, I have been involved in developing postgraduate veterinary online training modules on subjects including antimicrobial resistance, emergency animal diseases and on-plant veterinarian education.
