Title: Peer influences on eating behaviour in athletes

Charlotte’s research currently involves exploring the similarities and differences in eating attitudes and behaviours among members of sports teams. She is particularly interested in determining how peer influences change over the course of a competitive season and the conditions under which peers can be most influential. In addition, Charlotte is focused on exploring the impact of teammate eating behaviours and practices on an individual athlete’s food intake and food selection.
