Research

My research focuses on how stress impacts eating behaviour to affect food intake and food choice. I am trying to differentiate stress over-eaters from stress under-eaters. In more general terms I am a physiological psychologist. I do half of my research with rats and half of it with people. I also do research in evolutionary psychology and how certain characteristics cause us to have a greater attraction to the opposite sex and the evolutionary significance of those factors.
