Ms Ali Boyle

Ms Ali Boyle

Research Fellow

Ms Boyle is primarily interested in questions about the minds of animals, and what we can learn about animals' minds from their behaviour. Her current research centres around two questions. First, are animals mindreaders - do they understand that the creatures surrounding them have mental lives? Second, do animals have episodic memory - can they recall and mentally relive their past experiences? Her research aims to clarify the nature of these mental capacities, whether they might come in 'minimal' forms, and how they manifest in behaviour.
