My research is aimed at understanding how and why people make food choices, engage in various food behaviours and eat particular foods/diets, across the lifespan. My research investigates how psychological and social factors interact with biological factors and therefore provides insights into the mechanisms and processes underlying food behaviours and intakes, and consequently helps to identify opportunities for designing effective interventions to help people eat well.
