RD PhD MSc AFHEA
Diet, Lifestyle, and Obesity
I am a dietitian and my research interests are focused on the development and evaluation of health behaviour change interventions.
In 2017, I completed my PhD in Nutrition, Dietetics, and Behavioural Sciences at University College London funded by the UCL Grand Challenges. My work focused on developing and piloting a randomised controlled trial of a behaviour change intervention for healthy eating and physical activity in endometrial cancer survivors. Following my PhD, I worked as a Research Associate in the ASCOT and MASCOT trials at the UCL Department of Behavioural Science and Health. I am a member of the research work stream of the Cancer and Nutrition NIHR Infrastructure Collaboration and member of the Hellenic Dietetic Association Weight Management Task Group.
I am currently funded by the NIHR Oxford Biomedical Research Centre. My work spans the range from systematic reviews, intervention development and feasibility testing, to efficacy trials of interventions aiming to reduce weight or improve diet quality.
