Fiona Vande Velde


I obtained a Masters Degree in Communication Sciences, New Media and Society from Ghent University in 2013. In a consortium with CEPEC at the Department of Communication Sciences and the Laboratory of Parasitology within the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, I conduct qualitative and quantitative research towards improved communication strategies for a responsible use of anthelmintic drugs in ruminants, PARACOM. My project is funded by Flanders’ agency for innovation trough science and technology (IWT - FWO).
