  • UCL GOS Institute of Child Health
  • Faculty of Pop Health Sciences

I completed a Bachelor's degree in Psychology in 2008 (Staffordshire), and an ESRC recognised MSc in Research Methods and Statistics in Psychology in 2009 (University of Liverpool), before moving to Loughborough University to complete a doctorate within the Loughborough University Centre for Research in Eating Disorders (LUCRED). During this time, I undertook teaching and student supervision in quantitative research methods and statistics. I joined UCL in 2012 as a teaching fellow in the Institute of Child Health’s Centre for Applied Statistics Courses (CASC), to teach applied statistics and research methods to non-statisticians. In 2014 I was awarded Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy upon successful completion of a Professional Certificate in Teaching and Learning in Higher and Professional Education at the Institute of Education, London.

Research Summary

My primary research interests lie in the psychology of eating and feeding behaviours. My early research examined sensory perceptions of foods and their links to food neophobia in adults. I then moved into the fields of childhood eating behaviours, looking at psychological influences on obesity, and most recently at paediatric feeding disorders. Specifically, my doctoral research focused on the characterisation of feeding disorders in infants and young children, and examination of factors implicated and associated with their development. My research involves working with both clinical and community samples of parents and children, and collaborative work with paediatric clinicians.
