Overview

In my PhD, I investigate the role that disgust plays in our eating behaviour and how we might use this emotion to our advantage when it comes to changing our food habits. Currently, I'm looking into the specific case of meat disgust - a feeling commonly reported by vegetarians but not well understood in the meat eating population. In the future, I hope to be able to use my findings on how meat disgust affects meat consumption in intervention studies employing evaluative conditioning to help people reduce or eliminate meat intake. I am also very interested in the evolution and adaptive function of disgust.
