  • Pauleen Charmayne Bennett (born 13 October 1963) is an Australian scientist researching anthrozoology at Latrobe University in Victoria, Australia. Bennett's research in the field of human-animal interactions has informed government policy and covered areas of: human attitudes, health and behaviour; ethics of animals in society; animal behaviour, physiology and welfare. Her research interest lies in understanding the diverse psychological connections between humans and animals, particularly companion animals, positive psychology, and in the use of animals in human health therapies. In 2002, Bennett founded the Anthrozoology Research Group, an interdisciplinary team of postgraduate and undergraduate researchers with over one hundred peer-reviewed journal and conference publications. She is chair of the Australian Anthrozoology Research Foundation, a non-profit foundation set up to raise research funding for students investigating the potential benefits for human health of engaging with companion animals. Bennett was the first Australian, and first academic outside of the USA, to be elected to serve as the President of the International Society for Anthrozoology (2011–2015) and is on the editorial board for the international peer-reviewed journal, Anthrozoös.
