Dr Ertimiss Eshkevari

Personal profile

My research is primarily focused on body image and eating disorders. In particular body perception in people with eating disorders and its relationship with clinical features of the disorder.

I obtained my PhD in Clinical Psychology from the Australian National University. My PhD investigated body perception in people with an eating disorder and people recovered from an eating disorder (Supervisors: Associate Professor Elizabeth Rieger & Professor Janet Treasure). After completing my clinical psychology training I spent the final two years of my PhD candidature on a cross-institutional exchange completing my research in Professor Janet Treasure's eating disorders research team.

Following my PhD, I remained at the Institute of Psychiatry, King’s College London first working as a researcher in the area of body dysmorphic disorder followed by working as a clinical psychologist/researcher evaluating computerised CBT for young people with depression.

I commenced my academic role in the Department of Psychology at Royal Holloway University of London in 2013 and am a teaching-focused lecturer.
