I am currently undertaking a PhD in the School of Psychology, under the supervision of Professor Deborah Turnbull (School of Psychology), Professor Jodie Dodd (School of Paediatrics and Reproductive Health), Associate Professor Claudia Szabo (School of Computer Science) and Dr Melissa Oxlad (School of Psychology). My research interests lie in maternal and child health, and psychological approaches to behaviour change.
This project is part of a large randomised controlled trial being undertaken at the Women’s & Children’s Hospital to improve clinical outcomes throughout pregnancy, birth and beyond. My PhD research explores the development of an eHealth intervention for overweight and obese women intending pregnancy, with a focus on behaviour change to manage their weight and adopt a healthy lifestyle pre-conception.
