The Department has an active research community comprising of staff and research students, which is organised into 6 research centres:

We strive for research excellence and aim to support new researchers in career development. We welcome enquiries about our work, including potential collaboration and research student applications.

Notifications of research seminars in the above research centres will be announced on our Events pages.

Live Science at the Science Museum

A team of University of Roehampton researchers, led by Dr Leigh Gibson, has collected data from visitors to the Science Museum on the topic of “How much do you like to eat?”.

Do you find it easy to control what you eat? Or do some foods tempt you so much that you can’t resist them? Is it the foods, or is it you? Researchers from the University of Roehampton want to understand why some people may overindulge in certain foods and how this relates to our personality and genes.

Dr Gibson writes; "We have been delighted with the response and interest from the public in our study. We can announce that we have submitted our first abstract to a scientific meeting for 2016 (International Society of Behavioral Nutrition and Physical Activity), based on our findings about the implications of how fast you eat."
