Lauren Bandy


Dr Lauren Bandy is a post-doc researcher in the Food Purchasing group of the Health Behaviours team. Broadly, she is interested in how the food environment shapes our diet and our health. Her research explores how food sales data and nutrition composition data can be used in combination to monitor how food companies are responding to nutrition policies in the UK, including the voluntary sugar and salt reduction targets and the Soft Drink Industry Levy.

After completing her DPhil at Oxford Population Health, she was awarded a two-year Early Career Research Fellowship. She has a Master’s Degree in Food Policy from City University and an undergraduate degree in Nutrition from King’s College, London.

Lauren is an active member of the Early and Mid-Career Research (EMCR) group, and is the Departmental representative for the Medical Sciences Division’s Research Staff Forum. Please get in touch with her if you’d like to discuss anything relating to the early career research community or if you are new to the Department and would like to know more about EMCR activities.
