I am PGR team member of the Exeter Anthrozoology as Symbiotic Ethics (EASE) working group. My doctoral project focuses on cat-human relations and discourses surrounding free-roaming and free-living cats (Felis catus). Read more here. In 2018 I completed an MA in Anthrozoology with Exeter University via distance learning. It would have been impossible for me to relocate to Exeter, but this format enabled me to study a new field while continuing full-time employment. I loved the course and I am now working on my PhD while building the foundations of a new career – either as an academic, educator, or within a non-profit organisation dedicated to improving the lives of both human and non-human animals.
