Ruth is a registered nutritionist who lectures in Nutrition, health promotion, sensory analysis and new food product development at Cardiff Metropolitan University to students on food, nutrition, dietetics and allied health care courses.
As her favourite Welsh comedian, Rhod Gilbert would say ‘other Universities are available’ with a caveat that those delivering programmes in Food Science and Technology and thus at the forefront of keeping the nation fed are a little rare in this day and age.
She has spoken to many public groups and worked with media and the press on a variety of nutrition and food related topics.
Ruth's research interests lie in the area of the promotion of palatable, affordable, accessible sustainable diets and the link between oral and general health. She collaborates in this research with colleagues at Cardiff University.
