Claire Ricci-Bonot

Currently looking for a postdoc as I just finished my PhD in the Animal, Behaviour, Cognition and Welfare department at the University of Lincoln. Before this, I did a bachelor in “Biology of organisms” and then a master in “Animal and Human Behaviour” (France).

I am interested in animal behaviour particularly in social interactions between individuals (cooperation, decision making), social buffering and personality. One of my main areas of research is a better understanding of these phenomena to improve animal welfare.
