An assistant professor in the Department of Animal & Food Sciences, her research program broadly focuses on promoting the health and welfare of companion animals through improving human-animal interactions within various applied environments, such as shelter and veterinary environments. Her major goal is to identify ways to improve human-animal interactions through evaluating animal welfare indicators, human-animal bond, and mental wellness of humans.
Prior to joining the Texas Tech faculty, Stellato served as post-doctoral researcher and research assistant at the University of Guelph, Canada. In addition, Stellato was a Wildlife Conservation Volunteer at the De Wildt Shingwedzi Cheetah & Wildlife Ranch in South Africa.
