My research activities involves the use of animals with a therapeutic purpose, both in relation to the effects on humans, and the interactions with humans, as well as the behavioural responses and stress reaktionsof the animals. This subject is dealt either in an interdisciplinary way and involves co-operation with psychiatric researchers at the AU.

Furthermore, I study tail biting in pigs and the behavioural consequences of tail docking. Earlier my research activities have concentrated on a range behavioural subjects, including individual coping strategies in pigs, maternal behaviour in sows, developments of behavioural tests, and management and housing of horses and poultry.
