I am an early career researcher within the Swansea Nutrition, Appetite and Cognition research group. My current research focuses on the role of emotional regulation in eating behaviours, in particular emotional eating. Other research interests including hoarding behaviours and rehabilitation following traumatic brain injury.

I have a keen interest in ensuring research is accessible to the public and undertaking outreach work in schools and colleges.

Teaching

  • EMB1010D Psychology support tutorial

    The aim of the support tutorial is to provide academic support and guidance to students on a year 1 Integrated programme with The College, Swansea University and the Department of Psychology.

  • PS-100 Academic and Professional Development

    This module provides psychology students with the key skills that are required to succeed in degree level study in the discipline of psychology and beyond university as a graduate. There is an emphasis on building the skills necessary for independent study, such as time management, critical thinking and incorporating using feedback to improve academic performance. In the first half of the module, students will experience how and when to use a tool kit of study skills through a series of workshops and blended learning packs. Students will create a portfolio of reflections on their experience of making the transition to university study during the first year. In addition personal development planning is an important aspect of the module in order to record and further develop the skills needed for graduate employment. As part of the module students enrol in the Swansea Employability Award (SEA) and complete the bronze level (the Know Yourself module) by the end of Semester 2.
