Interests

My research is focused on how diet and lifestyle factors may affect chronic disease risk, including cardiovascular disease and cancer.

Research Statement

The aim of ongoing research is to determine the role of diet and lifestyle in the primary and secondary prevention of chronic disease. Current approaches include nutritional epidemiology, intervention trials using whole food/whole diet approaches, studies examining factors determining diet behaviours, and methods to promote behaviour change. The Nutrition and Metabolism group laboratories can assess a broad range of biomarkers of disease risk and nutritional status.

Current projects are funded by the Food Standards Agency, Medical Research Council, R&D Office Northern Ireland, Northern Ireland Chest Heart and Stroke, and the Centre for Ageing Research and Development in Ireland.
