LECTURER IN PSYCHOLOGY

I completed my Psychology MSci at the University of Bristol in 2016. I then completed my PhD at the University of Liverpool. My thesis titled â€˜Psychological mechanisms contributing to alcohol-induced increases in energy intake’, investigated reward and cognitive mechanisms implicated in alcohol consumption and food intake'. I joined Liverpool Hope University in 2021 and am currently a lecturer.
I am a member of the Social and Applied Psychology research group at Hope University. My main research interests focus on investigating psychological determinants of food intake. I am interested in understanding how different psychological factors (including social, cognitive, biological and environmental) can affect appetite control and eating behaviour.   
I deliver teaching throughout the undergraduate course, including 'What is Psychology?' (Year 1); 'Research Design and Analysis 2' (Workshops; Year 2); 'Emotion and Motivation' (Year 3). I also supervise both undergraduate and postgraduate dissertation projects.
