Lecturer in the Faculty of Science, University of Nottingham

I am currently researching the use of Insects as food for humans and livestock. My other current research seeks to examine the role of epigenetic modifications, most notably DNA methylation, brought about by in utero exposure to maternal undernutrition, in programming insulin resistance and how this might be modulated by ageing. In addition, I am also interested in understanding the mechanisms by which fetal growth impairment results in alterations in cellular determination during development.
