The More-Than-Human Lab is led by Dr Anne Galloway and based in the School of Design at Victoria University of Wellington, Aotearoa New Zealand.

Anne’s research examines intersections of people, nonhuman animals and technologies, and explores creative methods for public engagement around related matters of concern. Anne also spends as much time as possible at her rural home, where she shepherds small flocks of rare-breed sheep and ducks. You can find her on Twitter: @annegalloway

Dr Catherine Caudwell: Catherine is a Lecturer in the School of Design and an Associate Investigator with the Lab. You can find her on Twitter: @CBCaudwell

Birgit Bachler: Birgit is a PhD candidate in the School of Design, writing her thesis on the Internet of Things and interspecies communication. You can find her on Twitter: @irgbit
