Short autobiography:

I have been working for 15 years as a clinical researcher and a psychotherapist in the field of eating disorders and obesity. My research has focused on new modes of treatment delivery, eating disorders evaluation and weight loss maintenance

Reason for joining: To enrich the research protocol I am currently designing and ensure that it will be in accordance with what is carried out in other countries; to form potential collaborations with other partners interested in the same problematic
Current research interest in relation to the COST Action: Body satisfaction leads many women and men in the community to eat in a disordered way, with potential harmful consequences for their health. I am interested in the population of middle-aged and older women, who have been neglected by research until now.
