Senior Research Fellow
University of Bristol
Liz is a British comparative psychologist, having obtained a BSc in Psychology from the University of Bristol and a PhD from the University of Cambridge. She has been interested in the study of animal emotion and sentience for many years, both from the perspective of the animal and its welfare, and from the point of view of human observers and our beliefs about which species may and may not be sentient. Liz currently works at the University of Bristol, UK, investigating the emotional and cognitive capacities of a range of animal species, and also investigating people’s attitudes towards animal sentience and animal welfare.
