Dr Bethan Dalton

Postdoctoral Research Associate


I joined King’s in September 2013 as Research Worker in the Service User Research Enterprise (SURE) after completing my undergraduate degree in Psychology (BSc with a professional placement) at Cardiff University. I then went on to complete an MSc in Genes, Environment and Development at the Social, Genetic & Developmental Psychiatry Centre (2014-2015).

Since 2015, I have been a part of the Eating Disorders Research Group, first as a Research Worker on a randomised controlled feasibility trial of repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) for people with severe and enduring anorexia nervosa, then as a PhD student investigating inflammatory markers in eating disorders (2016-2019, supervised by Dr Hubertus Himmerich, Prof Ulrike Schmidt and Prof Gerome Breen), and now as a Post-Doctoral Research Associate and Trial Coordinator on a randomised controlled trial comparing inpatient treatment-as-usual to a stepped care day patient treatment approach for people with severe anorexia nervosa in need of intensive treatment.
