Research Statement

I am currently studying towards the PhD at the School of Biological Sciences, Queen's University Belfast. My research involves mainly applied aspects of behaviour analysis with human-dog teams (e.g., caregiver training and functional analysis). However, I am also interested in underlying behavioural processes and respective research (e.g., persistence, reinforcement), historical, philosophical and theoretical aspects of behaviour analysis (e.g., cultural selection), as well as human-canine relationships, learning, and animal welfare, in general.
