Emily is a Lecturer and Post-Doctoral Research Fellow at the University of Bath. Emily, with the support of the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) will continue to develop her research over a 2 year period. She obtained her PhD from the University of Reading in 2019 and has since taught across undergraduate and postgraduate psychology programs. Her primary research interest is centred around self-evaluation i.e., how individuals view themselves across a range of mental health problems including depression, anxiety, and also among those young people with chronic illness. Emily is also interested in how self-evaluation is distorted in relation to eating disorders and those who self-harm. Her interests include loneliness and mental health in young people, adolescent mental health, in particular anything related to self-evaluation, and adolescent depression, and adolescent anxiety.
