Personal profile

Research interests

I am currently doing a BBSRC-funded PhD in nutrition and metabolic physiology. As part of this, I am running a study to investigate the effects of ketones on immune, metabolic and cognitive health in older adults.

Before joining the Centre for Nutrition, Exercise and Metabolism (CNEM) at Bath, I studied Human Nutrition at the University of Surrey. Here I became interested in the pathology of type 2 diabetes, and how it can be reversed by diet and lifestyle changes. I conducted a systematic review to explore the roles of carbohydrate versus calorie restriction in type 2 diabetes remission, which was published in the Journal of Nutritional Science.

Prior to working in nutrition, I studied and worked in the sustainability sector in London. I worked as a consultant in PwC's Sustainability & Climate Change team and as a communications officer at the Energy & Climate Intelligence Unit. I am interested in the role of nutrition at the intersection between human and planetary health.

Alongside my PhD, I work as a freelance science writer, producing articles on topics related to nutrition and metabolism.
