Dr Katy Sivyer is a Research Fellow within the Centre for Clinical and Community Applications of Health Psychology at the University of Southampton.

Katy has worked in a range of clinical settings including brain-injury, chronic pain and mental health. Prior to starting her DPhil she previously worked in the NHS evaluating clinical outcomes of individuals with eating disorders following treatment in specialist services.

She completed her DPhil at the University of Oxford. Her research focused on examining how enhanced cognitive behaviour therapy and interpersonal psychotherapy for eating disorders work. This research also examined how to develop an appropriate analytic strategy for statistical mediation analysis under conditions of two active treatments and treatment personalisation.

Since then she has worked at the Centre for Clinical and Community Applications of Health Psychology developing and evaluating digital and behavioural interventions.

Research interests

I am interested in intervention development and evaluation, particularly, understanding how treatments work and for whom. I am also interested in how different methodologies and analyses can be used to answer these questions.

I have worked on various projects in this area including; eating disorders, diabetic foot ulcers, acupuncture, placebos, antibiotic reduction and conservation, and eczema.

Previous research I have been involved in has included; emotional processing, eating disorders, experimental psychopathology.
