As a psychologist, my research focuses on theory-based behavior change interventions to improve diet and nutrition status and to prevent and treat obesity in a variety of population groups.
I have a particular interest in the role of novel behavior-change methods such as habit formation and peer support, and I am keen to explore dietary behaviour change across the life-course, including in preconception, pregnancy and aging populations.
