Charles Perkins Centre Research Program Leader, University of Sydney

At the University of Sydney I am based at the Charles Perkins Centre, a collaborative approach to the treatment of obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Working with a broad client portfolio, my work focuses on the causes, prevention and treatment of obesity and associated mental and physical health disorders. I have worked in both industry and academic appointments across a diverse range of areas, including dietary and exercise treatments, conventional and complementary medicines, commercial weight loss programmes, medical devices, bariatric surgery, and appetite regulators. I am particularly passionate about translating science to the broader population and implementing a holistic approach for the treatment of overweight and obesity.
