I am an experimental psychologist with a research interest in eating behaviour and bodyweight. My research interests include individual differences affecting eating behaviour and body weight (particularly attachment orientation), the effect of food variety on dietary behaviour and consumer acceptability of sustainable eating practices and food products. I am currently the coordinator of the Swansea University branch of UK Reproducibility Network. In this role I advocate for open science practice across Swansea University and organise the ‘ReproducibiliTea’ journal club where the latest open science practice is discussed.
