Areas of interest

My research area spans the fields of nutrition, cognition, mood and mental health. My previous research has explored flavonoid-related benefits in typical and ADHD school-aged children, in student populations and in postnatal mothers and fathers, using a range of experimental psychological and physiological techniques. Recently, I have expanded my research horizons to examine potential mood benefits from exercise and leisure spa use alongside local community co-collaborators.
