Biography


My research involves cognitive psychology and behavioural methods to test the mechanisms of distraction induced over-eating. Specifically, when our attentional capacity is full, do we still notice food and how does this affect eating? This includes the effect of distraction on awareness of flavour, intake and satiety. I’m also interested in how individuals differ in these mechanisms. I started my PhD in Psychology at Sussex in 2016. I also studied for my Bsc in Psychology at Sussex and worked as a research assistant investigating how value influences intrusive thoughts.
