Research

My research program is focused on companion animal behavior and welfare, with a particular interest in topics related to the human-animal bond, shelter animal welfare, and the effect of age-related disease on cognitive ability. I am also interested in education research, specifically exploring methods for improved knowledge transfer and techniques that improve student learning and engagement in large class sizes.

I am a member of the Animal Behavior and Welfare Group in the Department of Animal Science.
