Samantha Livingstone


Samantha graduated from the University of Queensland in 2011 and went on to work in small animal practice in Sydney and Darwin for 3 years before falling into emergency and critical care. From here a love grew for the complexity of ICU patients, and the fast paced thinking required for emergency and ICU patients. She became a member of the Australia New Zealand College of Veterinary Scientists chapter for emergency and critical care in 2017.

In 2018 Samantha started working with the Critical Care Research Group at the Prince Charles Hospital campus on animal models of heart transplant and ARDS, and in 2019 she began her PhD in coagulation dysfunction of the Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome Subphenotypes. Samantha also works as an emergency and critical care vet at the Brisbane Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care Service and at the University of Queensland Small Animal Hospital.

Aside from working, studying and learning she enjoys running, cycling, hiking, watching Netflix and spending time with her husband and pets – a cavalier named Arthur, and two amazing cats named Misha and Pepper. She enjoys teaching others and hopes to one day balance her time between teaching and medical discoveries.
