I am an experienced ethologist and specialist in zoo animal behaviour and welfare studies. My areas of expertise focus on understanding the effect of the zoo environment on animal behaviour and welfare and identifying opportunities for mitigation efforts to ensure positive welfare in zoo-housed animals. I am the UK representative for the International Society for Applied Ethology (ISAE) and a member of the ISAE ethics committee. I am also a member of the British and Irish Association of Zoos and Aquaria (BIAZA) Elephant Welfare Group Behaviour Subgroup.
