Readership: Anyone interested in animals, their welfare, issues surrounding animal consciousness, and compassionate farming.
Marian Stamp Dawkins, Professor of Animal Behaviour, University of Oxford, Mary Snow Fellow in Biological Sciences, Somerville College, Oxford
Marian Stamp Dawkins was born in Hereford, England and has been fascinated by animal behaviour all her life. She read Zoology at the University of Oxford and studied with Niko Tinbergen, the Nobel Laureate and one of the 'founding fathers' of ethology, the study of animal behaviour. In 1998 she became Professor of Animal Behaviour at Oxford. Her research now centred increasingly on large scale commercial studies (broiler chickens, ducks and laying hens) as a bridge between academic research and the wider world of commercial farming.
