Dr Simone Titus

Chief Technical Officer (Ag)

Ministry of Agriculture, Land and Fisheries

Dr Titus has worked locally, regionally and internationally in projects promoting agricultural production and trade, bringing a wealth of experience to the post of Chief Technical Officer. In her previous portfolios in this Ministry, her contributions ranged from diagnosing the second largest outbreak of rabies ever documented in the country, to spearheading improvements in trade: in particular in import regulations and requirements of specific commodities.

Her previous portfolios as Director, Animal Health and Production and Technical Officer (Animal Health), included responsibility for the development of strategies for the management of exotic, endemic and zoonotic diseases; the conduct of trade negotiations; facilitating export of agricultural commodities; communicating with stakeholders and managing the relevant obligations of Trinidad and Tobago under the Sanitary and Phytosanitary, World Trade Organization Agreement.

Dr Titus has over 20 years of experience in this Ministry. She obtained a degree in Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM), with distinction at The University of the West Indies, a Master of Philosophy (M.Phil) from the University of Cambridge, United Kingdom in Veterinary Pathology and Molecular Biology, and a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) from Massey University, New Zealand in Veterinary Epidemiology specialising in Risk Analyses.

Dr Titus supports the promotion of agriculture as a viable, sustainable, technology-driven industry in Trinidad and Tobago.
