About Rob Skinner

My broad clinical experience includes both adult and paediatric work, in both community and inpatient settings. I have a particular interest in eating disorders, and have worked for a number of specialist teams across the North West region. I have also run clinical supervision groups for dietitians working in eating disorders. I am very glad to be here at University of Chester to lead the post graduate dietetics programme, and am excited to be helping train the dietitians of the future.

I am interested in all aspects of research relating to eating disorders, in particular the role of dietetics in an eating disorder service. I have previously supervised a number of student projects in the area of eating disorders, some of whom have presented their work at the BDA research symposium.
