Dr Rachel Pechey - Research Associate
Rachel studied Psychology with Mathematics at the University of Durham, and then completed her MSc in Social Science Research Methods and PhD at Cardiff University. Her thesis focused on investigating subclinical symptoms of psychosis (in particular, delusions) in the general population.
Subsequently she became involved in obesity research at the University of Oxford, in particular, looking at political and economic factors that have been implicated in the development of obesity at the population level.
As a Research Associate in the Behaviour and Health Research Unit , Rachel is working on a range of research projects aimed at improving the nutritional profile of food purchases, as well as looking at the acceptability to the public of interventions targeting behaviour change.
