Biography

I completed my Bachelor's degree in Psychology at Staffordshire University in 2008, before moving to Liverpool to undertake a masters in Research Methods in Psychology. After completing my MSc, I moved to Loughborough University to begin my doctorate within the Loughborough University Centre for Research in Eating Disorders (LUCRED). During this time, I also undertook teaching and student supervision in quantitative research methods and statistics. I was then offered a position at UCL, and joined the Statistics Courses team in the Institute of Child Health as a Teaching Fellow in October 2012.

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.
