Jake Linardon, PhD
Dr. Jake Linardon is a Lecturer in Psychology at Deakin University, Melbourne Australia. He started working at Deakin in 2018, shortly finishing his PhD at Australian Catholic University (2017). He continues to research into eating disorders, with a primary focus on testing and evaluating a broad range of treatment approaches for eating disorders.
In just his short time as a researcher , he has published around 25 peer-reviewed journal articles and book chapters, most of which he principally led and was the first author. He recently joined the editorial board for the International Journal of Eating Disorders, which is the most prestigious academic journal devoted toward the science of eating disorders.
His intentions are to build a program of research that focuses on preventing and treating mental health and eating disorders through the latest digital technologies.
