Personal profile

Research Interests

My major area of research interest is in the field of body image.   Specific topics include gender differences in body dissatisfaction; media effects; dieting, food craving and cognition; body image across the life span; the sexualisation of girls; and the stereotyping of the fat.   I am also broadly interested in all aspects of women's health.
