Dr Clint Perry
postdoctoral fellow, Queen Mary University of London, studying the cognitive capacities of small-brained animals in Sydney and London
Clint is a cognitive neuroethologist at Queen Mary University of London, who, after earning a PhD in neurophysiology at the University of Colorado, USA, has been studying the cognitive capacities of small-brained animals, like bees, in Sydney Australia and now in London, UK. Over the last few years Clint has produced numerous high-profile original research articles and reviews on the impressive cognitive abilities of invertebrates and has appeared on radio and television many times discussing these works and how they relate to our understanding of our own brains, the evolution of cognition and the way we view other animals in general. Clint also created and taught a graduate level neuro-ethics course covering animal sentience at the University of Colorado and has written for the Conversation, the American Journal of Bioethics, and Animal Sentience.
