Assistant Professor of Companion Animal Science

Director of the Canine Olfaction Research and Education Laboratory

 

Nathaniel Hall earned his PhD from the University of Florida in 2015. While there he did research working with fruit bats, dogs, and wolves. He continued his studies as a Post Doctoral Scholar at Arizona State University in the Canine Science Collaboratory.

Research

 My lab broadly studies dogs' sense of smell. We explore the capabilities of the dog's nose and how training influences olfactory perception. For more information, please visit my lab website. Potential graduate students may email me an inquiry.
