Currently my role is Senior Lecturer within the Nutrition and Dietetic Department of Cardiff Metropolitan University. I am also a Registered Dietitian. I have experience working in the field of maternal and child health in both developing and developed countries. My particular areas of expertise are global nutrition, early programming of health and disease, infant and young child feeding, and breastfeeding.
Current projects include a continued collaboration with the National Institute of Public Health, Cambodia. The aim of this collaboration is to initially provide teaching support for their higher education degree in Nutrition, but focussing longer term on capacity building of Cambodian Nationals to become the nutrition lecturers of the future. The potential future exchange of students and staff links with Cardiff Met internationalisation strategy 2015-20.
