Associate Professor of Animal Behaviour, Nottingham Trent University

Mark is an Associate Professor of Animal Welfare and Ethics. His research focuses on the relationships between people and animals. He is particularly interested in how pets are cared for, the benefits they provide and the problems they experience.

Having lived in New Zealand for ten years, he was inspired to work with cats because of the unique position they occupy. They provide a fascinating example of the capacity an animal has to polarise opinion.

His research interests include:

Human-Animal Interactions
Animal Behaviour
Animal Welfare
Companion Animals and Society
