Kiera Louise Adams

PhD Candidate of Experimental Psychology, University of Oxford

I am a DPhil candidate at the University of Oxford, researching the role of interoception in the overlap between autism and mental health conditions such as eating disorders and anxiety. In particular, my research explores interoception as a causal mechanism underlying the associations between various developmental conditions and mental disorders, including eating disorders, anxiety, autism and alexithymia. My research is funded by a Clarendon Scholarship and a Medical Sciences Division Studentship.
