Dr Samantha Rogers is an Early Career Research Fellow in the Centre for Research in Public Health and Community Care. Dr Rogers has a long-standing interest in parent-child interactions and factors associated with weight gain and feeding behaviours. Dr Rogers’ research has investigated a variety of factors that are related to eating behaviours and weight gain in early life, such as breastfeeding, maternal sensitivity and cortisol metabolism.
