Research interests

My research includes many aspects of nutrition including the role of diet in obesity, polycystic ovary syndrome, sports performance and how beverages and breakfast may be implicated in energy balance and body weight maintenance.

Research projects

MRC funded grant for a project entitled “Improving healthy energy balance and obesity related behaviours among pre-schoolers in Malaysia: feasibility of adapting the ToyBox Study”.

An industry awarded grant to investigate if there are any possible physiological mechanisms why people who regularly eat breakfast tend to have lower body mass index than people who skip breakfast.

Two projects have been funded by the Organix Foundation. The first investigated children's menus, portion sizes and nutrition labelling in chain restaurants and the second researched the food environment in leisure centres and health clubs.

In collaboration with Yvonne Jeanes and Professor Helen Mason from St Georges University London awarded a grant from the SW London Academic, Health and Social Care System for a project entitled: 'Pathways for PCOS: Mapping treatment and referral routes for women diagnosed with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome'.
