Personal profile

Research Focus

Research Interests

I am a Registered Nutritionist (Public Health) interested in the role of diet and lifestyle behavior in chronic disease risk and progression. My research experience to date has explored the role of dietary and lifestyle interventions/exposures on cancer-specific and health-related outcomes using a range of methodologies including: systematic reviews, observational studies and randomised controlled trials.

I am also interested in the role of coaching for health improvement and I'm currently developing research in this area.   


- I deliver several lectures and tutorials within the Undergraduate Medicine and BSc Food Quality, Safety and Nutrition courses. 

- Student-selected components (SSC) - I coordinate the MED1021 SSC: ‘Micronutrients in health and disease’ and contribute to several others within the medical curriculum.  


Student supervision

I am involved in the supervision of several PhD students and BSc Human Biology students, supervising projects relating to the areas of cancer epidemiology, nutrition and weight management.
