Personal profile


A lecturer in Human Nutrition, my primary research focus is on elucidating the role of food and the environment on sustainable health and disease prevention, while effectively teaching undergraduate and post graduate students about my chosen subject. I have the full time equivalent of 9 years post doctoral and 7 years research assistant experience with 25 peer reviewed publications and 3 book chapters. I have expertise in a range of research settings, as well as communication and networking, skills required when designing, implementing and evaluating public health interventions to define long term strategies for health.
