Dr Daisy Hildyard

Research Fellow

Department: Humanities

Daisy HildyardAfter studying at the universities of Oxford and London I published a novel, Hunters in the Snow. I came to Northumbria in 2015 to work on a three-year Leverhulme research project on writing about animals.

The project involves shadowing people - ecologists, vets or butchers, for example - who have a particular knowledge about animal lives, as research for a long essay on the relationships between species, and also for a novel whose characters are animal as well as human.

A project website publishes accounts of the research as it happens.

You can also follow my project research via Instagram.
