We study the psychological, behavioural, environmental, social, situational, and biological factors that control our desire to eat, the anticipation and enjoyment of food and energy intake. We also focus on psychological factors contributing to and resulting from obesity, as well as behaviour change and clinical communication in relation to obesity.
We have expertise in quantitative, qualitative, and mixed-methods research including randomised controlled trials (RCTs), experimental designs, cross-sectional studies, ecological momentary assessment, secondary data analysis using advanced statistical modelling (e.g., multilevel modelling), meta-analysis, focus groups, “citizen science”, and semi-structured interviews.
