I am a Postgraduate Researcher in the Department of Psychology (Science and Technology Faculty). I am currently completing my PhD under the supervision of Prof. Katherine Appleton and Dr Jeffery Bray. I teach psychology, behaviour change, and research methods in relation to nutrition part-time for undergraduate courses in the Department of Rehabilitation and Sports Science. My academic background is in Psychology (BSc Psychology and MSc Health Psychology).


My PhD is focused on healthy sustainable eating, exploring the factors that affect making sustainable food choices, understanding the barriers and facilitators to increasing and developing strategies to help encourage healthy sustainable diets in the UK. I have recently worked on a Clinical Research Trial investigating a role for sweet taste in reducing free sugar intakes in the general population. More broadly, I am interested in nutrition security, disordered eating, and mental health.
