Senior Lecturer in Appetite and Obesity
European Association for the Study of Obesity
Dr Boyland is an experimental psychologist and senior lecturer based at the University of Liverpool, with 15 years of experience in eating behaviour research. Her work principally focuses on the food environment, characterising the foods and beverages available and the way they are marketed via traditional and new digital means, as well as seeking to understand how this impacts eating behaviours (choice and intake) and determinants of eating behaviour (beliefs, attitudes, preferences), particularly in children. She has published over 80 peer-reviewed journal articles, 10 book chapters and six World Health Organization reports on this topic and is currently leading on food marketing projects for Public Health England, WHO and Unicef.
