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.
I am currently funded by the NIHR Biomedical Research Centre Obesity Theme to develop and test interventions for weight loss as the primary treatment for obesity-related diseases.
