Janice Siegford has two main areas of research interest: (1) animal behavior and (2) animal welfare. My interests in animal behavior include cognition, communication, social behavior, and their neural basis, as well as companion animal behavioral therapy, and interspecific interactions. Her interests in animal welfare focus generally on understanding what current practices or environments impact animal welfare and determining how we can practically address these situations. In addition, she seeks to develop non-invasive automated strategies for collecting data about animal behavior and welfare from animals in their home environments.
