Eileen Kathryn Tuite (Kat) is a researcher in the area of Anthrozoology - a subset of ethnobiology that deals with interactions between humans and non-human animals. She is conducting her PhD with the College of Health and Human Sciences at Charles Darwin University, and approaches her research questions pragmatically by incorporating both quantitative and qualitative methodological approaches. Her academic background in Zoology, and Evolutionary and Behavioural Ecology, combined with her breadth of experience in wildlife rescue and rehabilitation has equipped Kat with a strong theoretical and practical grasp of animal welfare and ethology. Kat embraces new opportunities to devise solutions to real-world problems and seeks to engage practitioners and leaders involved in animal management to generate outcomes that are both progressive and positively received. She is actively involved in strengthening the communication of science with impact - seeking to further contribute to science literacy for future generations - in her position as Lecturer of Science Education.
