Katie Moran, BSc (Hons)

Katie graduated from the University of Nottingham in 2012 with a first-class degree in Psychology.  She was first introduced to behaviour sequence analysis through Prof. David Clarke who was her tutor and supervised her final year project.  Katie employed the use of behaviour sequence analysis to understand students’ beliefs in how eating disorders develop, comparing those with or without and experience of eating disorders. 

Since graduating, Katie has been interested in mental health, working in both a research and clinical capacity in learning disabilities, forensic services, dementia, psychosis and eating disorders.  She is keen to consider how behaviour sequence analysis can be applied in novel ways to understand mental health.

Katie currently works as an Assistant Psychologist for an eating disorders service in Norfolk.
