Prof. Daniel Mills

I am a RCVS, European and ASAB recognised specialist in clinical animal behaviour, as such I have been developing and exploring new interventions for behaviour problems. More recently I have had opportunities to scientifically explore my interests in the potential value of our relationships with animals. My research in this area focuses on the benefits from pet keeping using a multidisciplinary approach, for example collaborations with biologists, health care professionals, psychologists, lawyers and economists.

Dr. Sophie Hall

After completing a PhD in cognitive neuroscience I undertook three years post-doctoral research training in educational psychology working with children from 2 – 15 years old. I am interested in scientifically exploring the role of animals in promoting learning and mental health in children. I am currently working on a long-term follow up project examining the effects of dog ownership in the families of children with autism. I am interested in the role of dogs as reading facilitators in the classroom and in the potential anxiety reducing effects of dogs for children.
