Dr Kathryn Bould

School of Psychology

I am a newly appointed lecturer in Psychology at LJMU and a Trainee Health Psychologist.
My research interests are health related; my PhD research looked at type 2 diabetes risk screening in dental practice.
I am interested in diabetes related research, health screening, risk communication, theoretical models and behaviour change, and psychological research conducted in the dental setting.
I am also interesting in the topic of breastfeeding and have recently worked on a research project looking at the psychosocial predictors of infant feeding in the area of Stoke on Trent.
