Emily Troscianko has a background in cognitive literary studies, investigating readers' psychological responses to fiction. This interest in the effects of literary reading led to a project exploring the relationships between fiction-reading and mental illness: a partnership with the UK eating-disorders charity Beat has generated rich survey data on these connections to form the basis for experimental investigation.

As well as coauthoring a textbook on consciousness, Emily Troscianko also writes a blog about eating disorders, called 'A Hunger Artist', for the US website Psychology Today, and is developing an app to support recovery from anorexia.
