Kirrilly is an Accredited Practising Dietician, and was recently awarded her PhD investigating whether food addiction exists in young Australian adults.

As part of this grant, Kirrilly proposes to conduct a small pilot study looking at the effect of a behavioural intervention on addictive-like eating behaviours. The study will be the first of its kind to determine if addictive-like eating is amenable to change via a behavioural intervention.
