I am a postdoctoral Research Officer in animal sentience and welfare at the London School of Economics, as part of the Foundations of Animal Sentience project. My primary research interests are animal welfare, ethics and consciousness.

I received my PhD from the Australian National University in Canberra, Australia, with a doctoral thesis exploring some philosophical issues in the measurement of animal welfare.

I have also previously worked for many years as a zookeeper and zoo animal welfare officer, interested in the application of animal welfare measurement in an applied zoo setting.
