Forschungsinteressen

Ich untersuche, wie Nutztiere ihre physikalische und soziale Umwelt wahrnehmen und mit dieser interagieren. Speziell beschäftige ich mich mit den kognitiven Fähigkeiten von Nutz- (Ziegen, Schafe, Schweine, Pferde) und Zootieren (Menschenaffen, Pinguine), und wie das Wissen über diese Fähigkeiten genutzt werden kann, um Haltungsumwelt und Mensch-Tier-Interaktionen zu verbessern.
  • Kognitive Fähigkeiten von Nutztieren
  • Mensch-Tier-Interaktionen
  • Tierwohl
  • Tierethik
