Interests

My main research interests are in relation to investigating the ability of dietary interventions to modify risk of chronic disease, particularly diabetes and cardiovascular disease, as well as exploring novel approaches to encouraging and supporting diet and lifestyle behaviour change.

Research Statement

Primary research interests:

Examining the biological effects of dietary interventions (individual nutrient, food-based and whole diet approaches), in randomised controlled trials, particularly in relation to diabetes and cardiovascular disease-related endpoints.

Understanding barriers to and facilitators of dietary behaviour and exploring novel ways of achieving dietary behaviour change.

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