About Sophie Hall

My main research interests lie in understanding the positive and negative aspects of human-animal interactions from the perspective of both the human-owner and the animal. I am interested in pursuing a multi-disciplinary, multi-methodology approach to better understand the unique and complex relationship between owners and their pets and the potential benefits of these to individual and societal well-being/capital. With a background in in neuroscience and experience in working in educational, health and developmental psychology I am interested in working with a range of collaborators to further research in this area.
