The prize is for a talented young scientist who conducts innovative, groundbreaking research. Kret conducts research into emotions from a comparative and evolutionary perspective. She researches emotions in not only humans but also animal species that are closely related to humans, such as chimpanzees, bonobos and orangutans. This involves working with various zoos and using new methods.
