“I am interested in interdisciplinary approaches combining methods from biology, philosophy and psychology to study animal consciousness and cognition. Topics I am especially fascinated by are animal welfare and ethics, self-recognition and Theory of Mind in non-human species as well as canine cognition and emotion. I have joined the EMOMETER team in autumn 2019 to conduct my Master’s study and will investigate lateralization processes in dogs in emotional contexts. Since October 2020 I am PhD candidate.”
