Kris Hill

Kris Hill is a PhD researcher with the University of Exeter and a member of the Exeter Anthrozoology as Symbiotic Ethics (EASE) working group. Her doctoral research focuses on cat-human relations within urban communities, and discourses surrounding free-roaming and free-living cats (Felis catus). Other areas of interest include morethanhuman families, griefwork, and animal representations. Kris previously trained as a molecular biologist and worked for many years on various aspects of plant development. Prior to that she worked within the equestrian industry, and is now building the foundations of a new career – either as an academic, an educator, or a researcher within a non-profit organization, dedicated to improving the lives of animals (including the humans who care for them). Kris is particularly passionate about the issue of pets in rental accommodation, and believes no one should be forced to relinquish a beloved companion animal to avoid homelessness.
