Research interests

  • Obesity prevention and treatment
  • Obesogenic environment
  • Public health interventions
  • Eating self-regulatory skills
  • Habit formation 

Current research 

The overall aim of my thesis is to 1) explore the impact of eating self-regulatory skills on weight control and dietary behaviours; and 2) investigate how this capacity can be enhanced in adults. I will be developing and validating a measure to assess eating self-regulatory skills in the adult population, as well as developing and analysing an online longitudinal study with undergraduate students and a digital habit-based intervention with obese adults.  Secondary data from the ‘Ten Top Tips Trial’ will also be used.
