Research interests

My research includes many aspects of nutrition including the role of diet in obesity and coeliac disease.  I also have an interest in healthier and sustainable restaurant menus and obesity related behaviours across the lifespan.



Research projects

Two MRC funded grants 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'.
