Projects per year
I am a Consultant Senior Lecturer in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry. Much of my research to date has used epidemiology and experimental psychology/cognitive neuroscience to develop a better understanding of the aetiology of eating disorders, with the aim of enabling the development of better prevention and treatment interventions in this field. My PhD used cognitive neuroscience techniques to investigate how women perceive their own and others bodies, and whether it is possible to shift their perception of body size. I have also used large data sets to study the aetiology of eating disorders, including demonstrating for the first time the relationship between eating disorders and schools.
I am interested in researching child and adolescent mental health more broadly, and I have recently been awarded a grant to begin work on understanding the relationship between, and common causal pathways to, eating disorders and self harm in young people.
As a Consultant Senior Lecturer, I spend half my week in the University of Bristol, and half my week working with children, young people and their families and carers in clinic in Gloucestershire Health and Care NHS Foundation Trust.
