Following my completion of the MA Anthrozoology with the University of Exeter, I successfully secured funding from the ESRC SWDTC in support of my research into the visibility of animal consumptive practices in Denmark. My (1+3) PhD research will involve a 15-month multi-sited fieldwork in Denmark where I will explore cultural attitudes towards animals and the meat they consume. 

My drive to conduct my own research and contribute to wider discourse on animal welfare and personhood has been a driving force in my recent progression to PhD study.
