Marianne O'Connor


Project Manager

My research is focused on two main areas: developing and testing evidence-based treatments for eating disorders, and creating means to better disseminate such treatments. 

I am currently involved in two projects: the follow up phase of a RCT comparing two treatments for eating disorders and the development of web-based therapist training programmes and measures of therapist competence in the fields of eating disorders and depression. This work is funded through a Strategic Award from the Wellcome Trust. For further information please visit 

In addition, I run training workshops in the use of the Eating Disorder Examination.
