Research interests

My research interests lie in investigating how we can support people to improve their health behaviours to prevent and reduce obesity. This is an important and highly topical area given that more than half of the UK’s adult population are now classified as overweight or obese, which has significant consequences not only for these individuals but also for society.  My research focuses on investigating which strategies, and in which settings we can best promote behaviour change, and contributing to an evidence base of good practice in obesity management that is accessible and directly relevant to public health teams. With this in mind I am currently working on a knowledge transfer project with Bath & North East Somerset PCT, and contribute regularly to the evaluation of services and generation of evidence-based ideas for service development.

Fingerprint Fingerprint is based on mining the text of the person's scientific documents to create an index of weighted terms, which defines the key subjects of each individual researcher.
