Sara C Owczarczak-Garstecka

PhD Candidate, University of Liverpool

I am currently working at the Institute for Risk and Uncertainty and the Institute of Epidemiology and Population Health at the University of Liverpool. I am interested in the behaviour and welfare of animals kept as pets and the links between human and animal well-being and welfare.

In my PhD I am studying perception and prevention of dog bites, relying on qualitative methods (ethnographic participant-observations and interviews, in-depth qualitative interviews and focus group discussions). I'm also involved in several public engagement projects, including Meet the Scientists at the Liverpool World's Museum, Pint of Science and Dog Tales.
