Research Assistant

I obtained my BSc Hons in Physiology, Sports Science and Nutrition from the University of Glasgow in 2004. I went on to work within Dundee City Council as an Eating for Health Advisor in a local primary school whilst piloting a healthy eating initiative in Dundee after-schools clubs.

In 2006 I became a Teaching Fellow at the University of Abertay Dundee where I lectured and co-ordinated modules in the fields of Nutrition and Physiology to a wide variety of undergraduate students.

I completed my PhD entitled "Determinants of seafood inclusion in pre-school age children" at the University of Aberdeen and graduated in June 2017.

Research Interest: My primary research interest lies within the field of nutrition and health, specifically within the field of early years and childhood nutrition and the prevention of obesity.
