I am currently undertaking a PhD at Swansea University. The project is looking at patients’ weight loss outcomes following weight loss (bariatric) surgery and measuring whether these outcomes are influenced by attachment orientation (specifically strategies of affect regulation) and previous history of domestic abuse.
I studied both my Bachelors degree in Psychology and Masters degree in Health Psychology at the University of Manchester. For my undergraduate dissertation I explored online group behaviour and for my Masters’ thesis I looked at weight regain following bariatric surgery. Having explored post-operative weight outcomes previously, I became very interested in this PhD research at Swansea.
