I am a Research Fellow in School of Life Sciences. I have experience in conducting psychology research in educational institutions, including schools and nurseries. I have conducted a number of intervention projects in schools, investigating a range of behaviours including, healthy eating practices, emotional processing and reading abilities. I have also conducted comparative research with dogs and children.
My current research priorities lay in understanding the role of companion animals to human health and development. I interested in understanding the role of the human-animal bond and the implications of this bond to the health of both humans and companion animals.
