    Research Statement

    As a dietitian and epidemiologist, I investigate the role of nutrition in healthy ageing and prevention of disease. My research spans two main areas: (1) Examination of dietary and other modifiable factors in relation to disease risk in cohort studies (2) Development and evaluation of interventions to promote lifestyle behaviour change and improve health and well-being. Specifically, I am interested in how dietary patterns influence neurodegeneration and cardiovascular disease during ageing. A goal of my current work is to inform evidence-based dietary recommendations for dementia prevention. I am recipient of several prestigious awards including The Beeson-CARDI Career Development Fellowship (American Federation of Aging Research,) The Wellcome Trust Seed Award in Science (2016) and Alzheimer’s Society Research UK pump prime Award (2016). I am a Senior Atlantic Fellow of the Global Brain Health Institute, University of California San Francisco and Trinity College Dublin.
