Rhiannon joined the CCRI in 2007 and was involved in a variety of projects in the CCRI, primary in relation to fieldwork and data analysis. In 2012 Rhiannon took up a post as  lecturer in rural land use and management at the Royal Agricultural University. She is currently working with Dr Damian Maye on the social science study to accompany the Badger Vaccine Deployment Programme, which is funded by Defra. In 2012, Rhiannon accepted a position on the Board of Trustees for the Gloucestershire Rural Community Council. Rhiannon was also a part time PhD student at the CCRI exploring the role of social capital in increasing the response capacity of farmers to bovine tuberculosis, and she successfully defended her thesis in January 2013, subject to very minor amendments.
