I am a registered nutritionist and an Associate lecturer at the University of Hertfordshire with over 20 years' experience teaching nutrition at university level. I have extensive research experience in nutrition, cancer biology and using natural products for disease treatment and prevention. I currently serve on the editorial board of Public Health Nutrition.
I have run numerous short courses on the Mediterranean diet for dietitians and members of the public. I have also run an NHS-approved pilot study on adopting a Mediterranean diet.
I am the author of three books on the Mediterranean diet: The Mediterranean Diet: Health and Science (2011), More Healthy Years - Why a Mediterranean Diet is best for you and for the planet (2020) and Implementing the Mediterranean diet (2022).
