Biography

I completed my PhD in Experimental Psychology, concerned with satiety expectations for a range of common foods and part-sponsored by Cadbury-Schweppes, at the University of Bristol approximately 3 years ago.

I have recently been working within the Addenbrooke's Hospital site of the Psychiatry Department of the University of Cambridge, on a project concerned with impulsivity and compulsivity, as assessed by a range of neuropsychological and functional MRI paradigms, where cohorts included obese persons with and without binge eating disorder. Subsequent to these assignments, I also completed an MSc in Substance Misuse and a BSc in Psychology; both at the University of Sussex.

I will be working at the UEA within the Department of Nutrition on ‘The Cognitive Aging Nutrition and Neurogenesis (CANN)' trial, which is concerned with investigation into the cognitive benefits of a combined flavonoid/fatty acid intervention, and with establishing the underlying mechanisms of action for any such benefits. This is a project led by Professor Anne Marie Minihane.
