Dr Susanne Pfeiffer joined City University of Hong Kong in November 2016 as a Visiting Fellow to contribute to the development of the teaching in biostatistics in the new Bachelor of Veterinary Medicine and to provide statistics research support in the Jockey Club College of Veterinary Medicine and Life Sciences.

After gaining a Degree in Dental Medicine from the Philipps University in Marburg, Germany, she worked in private dental practice in Germany until taking a career break to raise a family. During that time she worked for six months as an unpaid research assistant in an epidemiological field study of bovine tuberculosis in wild possums in New Zealand.

In 2016, she graduated with a First Class Honours Bachelor of Science degree in Mathematics and Statistics at the Open University, United Kingdom, and she is a Fellow of the Royal Statistical Society (Graduate Statistician) and Associate Member of the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications (AMIMA).

Her medical background and statistical training together with her first-hand experience of an epidemiological field study in a wild animal population allow her to apply and communicate statistics within the context of evidence-based veterinary medicine and thereby contribute to the interdisciplinary One Health approach of the Jockey Club College of Veterinary Medicine and Life Sciences.

She is also interested in the development of distance learning courses where she will be able to draw on her own experience of studying for an honours degree course via distance learning at the Open University in the United Kingdom.
