I am a Lecturer in Psychology. My research is concerned with all aspects of eating behaviour (eg eating disorders, binge eating, obesity), emotion processing and behaviour change. My PhD research focused on how emotion processing deficits may contribute to the development of eating-related psychopathology. Currently, I am working on a research project examining the role of emotion, compassion and personality in obesity. This work will inform the development of a diagnostic tool for obesity by focusing on the specific risk factors implicated in overeating.
