Job Title:
Lecturer in Nutritional Sciences
Responsibilities:
Areas of Interest:

My main areas of interest are in appetite, food intake and energy expenditure and the regulation of these. My research to date has focused on diets, particularly high fat diets, and food, primarily foods containing different types of lipids, and their effects on gastric emptying and appetite and food intake. I have a keen interest in exploring appetite across the lifespan, looking at groups that may be of particular interest with regards to appetite. This includes infants and toddlers and older adults. The main methodologies that I utilise are food intake measurements, questionnaires and scales, indirect calorimetry for energy expenditure and substrate utilisation, measurement of appetite hormones and gastric emptying utilising stable isotopes.

Current interests:

  • Increasing appetite in older adults.
  • Weaning methods and food intake in infants.
  • Appetite responses to different lipids
