Biography

Research Biography
Dr Lattimore is a research psychologist with specific interests in psychological aspects of appetite control, specifically the nature, course and outcome of deficits in self-regulation capacity. His research bridges basic science and applied domains aligned with a focus on health and wellbeing. This focus has emerged from his PhD work on emotion regulation and family communication in anorexia nervosa. He continues to be active in this area as evidenced by his 2017 publication in Psychiatry Research. His interest in the basic science of mindfulness meditation and its potential for wellbeing dovetails with his interests in eating behaviour and its disorders. This is most evident in recent publications and PhD supervision that focuses on the use of mindfulness meditation to address hedonic eating and its consequences for weight gain.
