Personal profile


My research is focused on how diet and lifestyle factors may affect chronic disease risk, including cardiovascular disease.

Research Statement

The aim of ongoing research is to determine the role of diet and lifestyle in the primary and secondary prevention of chronic disease. Current approaches include the use of biomarkers to better measure dietary intake, intervention trials using whole food/whole diet approaches, and the development of interventions to promote behaviour change.
