Biography

I graduated from the University of Bristol in 2009 where I conducted a research project supervised by Jeff Brunstrom investigating children’s expectations of how filling a range of snack foods would be and how these beliefs related to their previous experience of consuming the products. In 2010 I began a 4-year PhD funded by the BBSRC and the DRINC initiative, supervised by Prof. Martin Yeomans and Dr Lucy Chambers at the University of Sussex.  My PhD research is focused on the role of cognitive and sensory influences on satiation (the processes leading to stopping eating) and satiety (the extent to which a food or drink suppress hunger over time and inhibits future consumption) with a focus on developing some design rules aimed to improve the reported weak satiating value of energy consumed in beverages (such as soft drinks, energy drinks and fruit juices).
