Rosie earnt her PhD in Psychology from the University of Birmingham. She completed her post-doctoral research at King's College London and the University of Surrey.
Rosie's research primarily explores the intersection between dietary-controlled conditions and disordered eating. During her PhD, she developed a model of disordered eating in gastrointestinal conditions, and a screening tool to identify those most at risk. More recently, she co-designed a psychoeducation intervention to prevent disordered eating in children and young people with type one diabetes (the PRIORITY trial).
More broadly, Rosie designs and evaluates integrated health system interventions to improve child health. She led the process evaluation, nested within a randomised controlled trial, of a new model of care providing integrated services to 120,000 children (the Children & Young People's Health Partnership). Findings from this trial are emerging, but baseline analyses are already being discussed in Parliament due to the impact on child health.
