I am a founding member of the Liverpool Food Growers Network, a trustee of Feeding Liverpool, and a member of the Food Standards Agency’s Advisory Committee on Social Sciences.
    I have a B.Sc. (Hons) degree in Psychology from the University of Leeds (1st Class) and a PhD from Bangor University. I have held post-doctoral research positions at Bangor University and the University of Bristol. I joined the University of Liverpool as a Lecturer in Psychology in 2013, and was promoted to Senior Lecturer in 2018, and to Personal Chair in 2023. I am a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.
