Research Interest 1
My research focus is human-animal interactions, in particular:
dog walking and physical activity,
childhood obesity and pet ownership,
dog aggression towards humans,
dog bite prevention,
and responsible dog ownership.
- Perceptions of dog bites: why do they occur and how can they be prevented?
- Understanding the role of dog ownership and walking for better human health.
