My research interests lie in the fields of health and clinical psychology. In particular I am interested in body image, the mass media and health, promoting diversity at every size and eating disorders.
I am also interested in research aimed at supporting women's access to optimal choice and evidence-based information to better meet their needs and wants of maternity services and birthing experiences.
