I am a Research Associate in public health improvement and my research interests are in understanding the mechanisms to create healthier and equitable environments. I have a particular focus on the out-of-home catering sector and have worked with customers, communities, local authorities and industry to explore solutions to provide us all with healthier food options.

I completed my PhD studies in Public Health Nutrition to compliment my BSc Honours degree in Ecology and MSc in Geographical Information Systems (GIS). I have skills, experience and published across a range of methods, inclusive of: observational epidemiology, qualitative interviews, laboratory controlled experiments, cross-sectional studies, mixed-methods before-and-after studies, time-series modelling, GIS & remote sensing.

I am currently exploring a participatory-approach to understanding digitally mediated methods to provide users with improved nutritional information and their potential to support healthier food choices.
