Our research investigates the ways in which clinical eating disorders and disordered eating are maintained and develop. We are particularly interested in cognitive and emotional processes, as understanding more about these will be helpful to those treating people with eating problems. We have an interest in testing and developing psychological models of eating disorders. Our research has made a significant contribution to the understanding and importance of negative self-beliefs in people with anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa.
