I am a BRC Researcher with research interests in trialling interventions for the management and treatment of obesity-related diseases. 

My PhD at Newcastle University focused on assessing the potential utilisation of lifestyle therapies as a means of treating and managing liver disease. As part of this, I explored the feasibility of a very low calorie diet (VLCD) to achieve significant weight loss in patients with advanced non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). 

I am currently working on the DIAMOND programme, which is looking to see how effective a low-energy, low-carbohydrate behavioural programme is for people with Type 2 Diabetes (T2DM). I am also working on the RESULT study, which is looking to assess a digitally delivered low-carbohydrate diet for people with recently diagnosed T2DM.
