Biography

Lorenzo obtained his veterinary degree at the University of Turin, Italy in 2006. He worked for two years in a farm animal practice in the Turin area and subsequently completed a 2-year internship in Production Animal Health at Glasgow Vet School, followed by a residency programme in the European College of Bovine Health Management Diploma. He is currently a diplomate of the ECBHM and is working as University Veterinary Clinician at the Glasgow Vet-school. His main clinical and research interest is the herd health management of dairy cattle, in particular the reproduction and udder health aspects.
