My research focuses on the psychology of eating behaviour. I am interested in how some individuals regulate their emotions using food, especially when they have an insecure attachment style. I have a special interest in domestic violence, specifically when survivors have developed disordered eating.
I completed my Ph.D. with Prof. Jeff Brunstrom at the Nutrition and Behaviour Unit, School of Experimental Psychology, University of Bristol. My Ph.D. concerned cognitive factors affecting sensory specific satiety (the decline in pleasantness associated with a food as it is eaten relative to a different food that has not been eaten).
