My background is in chemistry (UG / MSc) and food science (PhD); however, I have since then developed a research interest in sensory science to understand the relationship between food structure and perception. More recently, I have started working in the field of food consumer behaviour in relation to healthy choices. I currently supervise a doctoral student working on the impact of environment on food choice and food intake.
I am the head of the Food & Nutrition subject group which comprises of academics from a broad range of food and nutrition related disciplines such as: dietetics; public health; behaviour change; nutrition for health and exercise; food technology; sensory science; food consumer research and food marketing. We welcome PhD applications in all those fields.
