Research interests / activities

I am working on my PhD in anthrozoology, while building the foundations of a new career – either as an academic, educator, or within a non-profit organisation dedicated to improving the lives of both human and non-human animals. I am a volunteer communication officer for the Society of Companion Animals Studies (SCAS). My doctoral research focuses on cat-human relations and discourses surrounding free-roaming and free-living urban cats.
