About me

I am a Senior Research Fellow based at the Centre for Appearance Research. My research involves investigating social, cultural, and psychological influences on body image, to inform the development and evaluation of interventions and strategies to promote positive body image in education, community, health, and corporate settings. I'm passionate about translating research into real-life social impact at a local, national, and international scale. I regularly consult and collaborate with a wide range of stakeholders, including businesses, health organisations, and charitable trusts.
