Behavior analysis is the natural science focused on behavior and behavior change in individuals (human and non-human). The topic of behavior analysis deserves its own segment on this website since it is an integrated part of everything Eva does, and since she is an avid disseminator and networker in the cross-section of behavior analysis and practical animal behavior and training.
Eva’s background in behavior analysis
Eva has a master’s degree in behavior analysis from Oslo Metropolitan university. She has been a board member of the Swedish Association for Behavior Analysis (SWABA) since 2013. She has presented on topics related to animal training, cooperative care and TAGteach at various behavior analysis conferences and events in Norway, Sweden and Finland, and was one of the invited speakers when the international behavior analysis conference was held in Stockholm in 2019.
