Chair professor, University of Aberdeen

I am the Director of the Rowett Institute, which is part of the University of Aberdeen. The Rowett is the largest nutrition research institute in the UK.
My research interests are how we regulate our food intake and energy balance, and how external factors, be that diet or the light-dark cycle, or internal factors such as our biological clocks influence these processes.
I have been involved in research for almost 40 years and have received funding from Government funding bodies as well as industry.
