About Christian Nawroth, Ph.D.

I am interested in how animals perceive and interact with their physical and social environment. In particular, my research focuses on the cognitive capacities of farm (goats, horses, pigs, sheep) and zoo animals (great apes, penguins) and how this knowledge can ultimately be used to improve their management conditions and human-animal interactions.
