Dr Emily Stone

Dr. Emily Stone. PhD, MA. BA.

Dr Emily Stone received her PhD in Anthrozoology from the University of Exeter in 2020. Her PhD research was focused on the breeding and exhibiting of pedigree cats in the UK, exploring the ethics, practices and discourses within the activity. With a previous background in feline welfare, Emily is currently a Postdoctoral Research Fellow whose research interests revolve around the ethics and complexities of human-companion animal relationships, particularly those involving cats. She hopes to expand our understanding of who cats are as a species and as individuals to improve their overall wellbeing, as well as our relationships with them.
