Research summary

Research conducted as part of my PhD is primarily focused on cognitive control and unhealthy eating behaviours. In line with an existing project, cognitive control training protocols will be investigated using brain stimulation and neuroimaging techniques. Experimental studies will also inform current accounts of cognitive control processes (e.g., action cancellation) with regards to food-specific task performance in both healthy-weight and over-weight individuals. Similarly, I have a strong interest in how motivational and cognitive processes interact with individual differences to predict healthy and unhealthy eating behaviours.
