Dr. Wendy Kwok joined City University of Hong Kong in October 2017 as a Senior Research Associate. In this role, she will conduct veterinary epidemiology research in the Centre for Applied One Health Research and Policy Advice, and provide teaching support for the One Health aspects of the new Bachelor of Veterinary Medicine.

After qualifying as a veterinarian from the University of Glasgow, she practiced small animal medicine in Hong Kong for several years, focusing mainly on cats and dogs. This was followed by a Masters in One Health (Infectious Diseases) jointly taught by the Royal Veterinary College and the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, during which she investigated the effect of husbandry on the prevalence of zoonotic Hepatitis E virus in British pigs. She also has experience in molecular diagnostic test development for Feline Infectious Peritonitis.

Research interests:

  • Molecular epidemiology
  • Viral zoonoses
  • Antimicrobial resistance
