Personal profile

Research interests

My research interests lie in diet, physical activity and health, and the application of the behavioural and social sciences to health care and the delivery of care.

I graduated with an MSc in Applied Human Nutrition, before going on to receive a PhD in Medical Studies from the University of Exeter in 2018. My PhD was focused on the role of mealtimes in structuring the health, wellbeing, and quality of life of older adults living in care – where malnutrition is a perennial issue.

I am currently working on a project, funded by the Centre for Sport, Exercise and Osteoarthritis Research Versus Arthritis, which aims to develop a digital app for young adults at risk of developing post-traumatic osteoarthritis – a type of osteoarthritis affecting young people with a history of joint injury. This is part of a wider programme of research which is improving our understanding of the effects of sport, exercise and injury on the musculoskeletal health of athletes, recreational exercisers and patients.
