Our final Ingestive Behaviour Seminar Series talk for this semester will be next Wednesday (March 4th) at 10am in Frankland 309b.
Dr Charlotte Hardman from University of Liverpool will be giving a talk on: “A biopsychological approach to food addiction and implications for eating behaviour”
Dr Hardman completed her undergraduate degree in psychology at the University of Leeds and her PhD research at Bangor University under the supervision of Pauline Horne and Fergus Lowe. While at Bangor she developed a behaviourally-driven intervention to increase physical activity in children and also worked for many years on the award-winning Food Dudes Healthy Eating Programme. She then conducted postdoctoral research with Peter Rogers at University of Bristol, which included studies on the effects of distraction, attentional bias modification and the psychological and biological components of food reward. Charlotte is presently a lecturer in the Department of Psychological Sciences at the University of Liverpool. She is interested in psychological determinants of appetite and eating behaviour and in the application of this knowledge to interventions for health behaviour change. Recent research interests are in the area of “food addiction”, including the determinants of food addiction beliefs and the effects on eating behaviour.
