Research

Brenda aims to contribute to the growing acknowledgement and understanding of animal sentience, animal cognition, and the moral standing of non-human animals in both the academic world and society at large. She graduated cum laude in both her BSc Psychology (Hons) at the University of Amsterdam and her MSc Primate Conservation at the Oxford Brookes University. Brenda has a passion for animal minds and animal ethics, which translates itself into the following research interests: cognitive ethology, animal cognition and consciousness, primate behavioural ecology and the psychology of speciesism. Her ultimate aim is to unite animal ethics and science, and help change the dominant anthropocentric world view into a sentiocentric one - one in which we acknowledge the moral standing of all sentient beings with whom we share our planet.
