Senior Lecturer in Psychology, CQUniversity Australia

Dr Bradley Smith works as a senior lecturer in psychology at CQUniversity (Adelaide campus) in the School of Health, Medical and Applied Sciences. He combines his background in comparative psychology and ethology with a multidisciplinary approach to the study of animal behaviour and the intersection between humans and non-human animals.

Bradley is actively involved in captive and field-based research covering the cognition, behaviour and management of Australian wildlife (with a particular emphasis on the dingo), and the human dimensions of wildlife conservation. He aims to utilise his expertise to explore ways to foster co-existence between humans and wildlife, including examining the nature of human attitudes, the impact of humans on wildlife, and finding non-lethal solutions to resolving the conflict.
