About Kreavet

Kreavet was born of a drive to enhance sustainable livestock farming by securing a global food supply of animal products while contributing to the livelihood of farmers, environmental and social goals.

After having developed the concept of EconoHealth in a number of vision and opinion papers, where we argue how major advancements can be made if the economic, social and environmental context are better integrated in animal health advices, it was time to put words into action.

With a fresh approach, we endeavour to support any organisation or individual that believes in this concept and wants to contribute to tomorrow’s animal health landscape. We work with expert partners from around the world to bring you the right service and maintain following key-words on our wall-board to build our management culture: Simplicity, Honesty, Custom made, Thrust, Collaboration, Eye for detail.

Johannes Charlier
Johannes Charlier
Managing director (DVM, PhD)

Johannes is a veterinary scientist and regularly invited speaker at international workshops or conferences. After a career of 13 years as scientist in the field of veterinary parasitology and epidemiology at Ghent University (1st veterinary faculty in Shanghai Ranking Index 2017-2019), and 2 years as scientific director at Avia-GIS, he founded Kreavet in 2017. He described his view on sustainable parasite and animal health management in a series of recognized review and opinion papers. The principles of those papers are a guideline for the development and strategies of Kreavet.

Johannes is a EBVS® European Veterinary Specialist in Parasitology and received several scientific awards for his contributions to veterinary parasitology and epidemiology. He is project manager of DISCONTOOLS, sits in the board of various scientific organisations and regularly acts as (guest-)editor for scientific journals.

Tong Wang
Tong Wang
R&D manager (PhD)

Tong has extensive experience in applied research, with a major focus in parasite epidemiology. He completed his PhD in veterinary parasitology at University of Bristol in 2015. Before joining Kreavet, he worked as a postdoctoral researcher in Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada and University of Calgary for 5 years. His work in the UK and Canada has involved significant interactions with livestock farmers through planning and conducting field research.

Tong has managed multiple research projects and consistently delivered high-quality results which have resulted in numerous peer-review publications and conference presentations. He has a strong background in pasture risk assessment with predictive modelling. His major role in Kreavet is to develop expert tools and services on sustainable parasite control for cattle and sheep farms.

Alistair Antonopoulos
Alistair Antonopoulos
Scientific project manager (PhD)

Alistair graduated from the University of Glasgow School of Veterinary Medicine, and completed a post-doctoral project at the University of Glasgow School of Biodiversity, One Health, and Comparative Medicine. He developed novel molecular diagnostics for anthelmintic resistance, and elucidated resistance markers in the model parasitic nematode Haemonchus contortus. Alistair was part of the team that discovered and validated the first known SNP marker for levamisole resistance in H. contortus, and has developed several molecular diagnostic assays for H. contortus and a next-generation sequencing marker panel for Ostertagia ostertagi to aid in the sustainability of livestock production by improving anthelmintic resistance control.

Alistair has been involved in multiple multidisciplinary and international projects, and has been co-principal investigator on a BBSRC international partnership project, in addition to managing research projects which have resulted in multiple peer-reviewed papers and conference presentations at national and international meetings. In Kreavet, he is contributing to the conduct and development of multi-actor Horizon EU funded projects such as BioSecure, focused on improving biosecurity implementation within Europe for sustainable livestock production.
