Portrait of Jenny Josephs


After completing a BSc in Psychology at the University of Southampton, Jenny stayed on to complete an MSc Research Methods in Psychology and a PhD in cognitive psychology. Jenny’s thesis explored how the visual system internalises the statistics of the natural environment and leads to biases in perception.

Meanwhile, her interest in preventing food waste inspired her to start a business selling insects as a sustainable source of protein. Through this, Jenny developed a passion for science outreach and decided to return to use this in both teaching and research. 

Further information

Jenny’s research interests primarily focus on attitudes towards novel foods and meat consumption, in particular entomophagy (eating insects).
