Personal profile


I am a Research Fellow within the University of Western Australia's School of Psychological Science, where I also completed my PhD in 2018. My PhD examined the role of cognitive processing in body image and eating disturbances. Since commencing my role as Research Associate in 2019, I have continued to build expertise in this unique line of research by establishing research collaborations with leading national and international research groups in the field. As a Research Fellow I also contribute to teaching undergraduate courses and supervising research students.

Research interests

My research examines the role of cognitive processes, such as biases in the processing of food and appearance-related information, in body image and eating disturbances. I also have an interest in developing novel cognitive interventions to alter maladaptive cognitive processes, with the aim of building resilience to eating disorders and body dysmorphic disorder.

Roles and responsibilities

Research Fellow at the Centre for the Advancement of Research on Emotion, within the School of Psychological Science.
