Dr Susan Gibson-Kueh did her BVSc at Sydney University, MSc at Institute of Aquaculture, Stirling University, UK and PhD on ‘Diseases of Asian seabass or barramundi, Lates calcarifer Bloch’ at Murdoch University in Perth.

One of her earlier roles was as Head of the Aquatic Animal Health Laboratory, AgriFood and Veterinary Authority of Singapore for over a decade.

Dr Gibson-Kueh published the first reports of two important diseases of Asian seabass or barramundi, scale drop and big belly. Her current research is focused on the translation of an in-depth knowledge of gaps in aquatic animal health in aquaculture into her research goals. She believes that the key to successful management of diseases lies in advancing current knowledge based on applied fish physiology, immunology and gene expression. She is passionate about promoting livelihoods to empower remote communities through quality education and research, in line with UN sustainable development goals to alleviate poverty.
