Personal profile

Research Interests

My general research interests are animal cognition, animal psychophysics, and applied animal behaviour. My research focuses on domestic dog olfaction and how best to train and evaluate sniffer dogs for a variety of applications. In particular, I am interested in the use of sniffer dogs for the detection of physiological changes in humans and how sniffer dogs can improve their owners' quality of life. I am also interested in how the study of animal cognition can inform the care of, and improve the welfare of captive animals.

Particulars

I completed my education in Canada, beginning with an honours degree in psychology and a minor in biology at Saint Mary's University in Halifax, NS where I studied provisioning and paternity in European Starlings (2009). I then went on to complete a masters degree at York University (2012) in Toronto, ON, examining perceptual cognition in Sumatran Orangutans. I completed my PhD in 2017 at Dalhousie University in Halifax, NS, with a methodological exploration of hypoglycemia detection dogs in vitro. I have been a lecturer at Queen's University Belfast since September of 2018.
