Personal profile

Research Focus

I am interested in the role of plant-based dietary patterns in the prevention of disease and in environmental sustainability. My Ph.D is focused on the role of plant protein sources and high quality plant-based diets in healthy muscle ageing. This will involve a range of methods including systematic review, cohort analysis, and development and conduct of a lifestyle intervention.

Following this, I spent some time working at the Agri-Food and Biosciences Institute (AFBI) where I was involved in qualitative research and stakeholder engagement within the EU Interreg ALICE project.
