About Stephanie Armstrong

Stephanie Armstrong is a lecturer in College of Social Science.  Stephanie comes to the University of Lincoln from a rather diverse background having begun academic life in the field of Zoology.  She completed a PhD in Zoology from Trinity College, Dublin in 2006, where her work focused on the nutrition and behaviour of large captive herbivores and in particular zebra.  In 2004 she joined Sparsholt College, Hampshire as a lecturer in the Equine Studies section and eventually becoming Head of Department for Animal Management Higher Education.  After being out of the research environment for some time Stephanie made the decision to retrain and embark upon a change of career.  With that in mind she undertook an MSc in Forensic Anthropology at the University of Lincoln, reigniting her passion for research. She also holds degrees in Equine Studies and Herbal Medicine.
