Animal welfare is dependent on what animals feel (their emotional state). Accurate measures of animal emotions are thus essential in order to correctly assess whether the ways we house and manage domestic and captive animals promote good well-being. However measuring animal emotion can be challenging because we cannot know for sure about the subjective experiences of other species. My research interests are in developing and validating behavioural, cognitive and postural indicators of animal emotion (affect).
