BSc(Hons), PGDip, MSc, FRSPH, RD
I am a Registered Dietitian with a MSc in Human Nutrition (Merit) and PGDip in Dietetics and Nutrition (Distinction). I am also a Doctoral Researcher, awarded a fully funded PhD studentship.
My current research focuses on the influence of macronutrient (specifically protein) and different forms of meals on appetite and dietary intake in UK adults.
Prior to this, I was involved in a public health study investigating the prevalence of healthy and less healthy advertisements near schools in a London borough. This was in view of the increasing prevalence of childhood obesity in the U.K and evidence linking children’s exposure to food adverts and its influence on their food choices. Abstract for this study will be published in the Journal of Human Nutrition & Dietetics (JHND) in early 2020.
I have also carried out a pilot study looking at the associations between vitamin D status and markers of immune functions in Caucasian and South Asian women living in Surrey, U.K.
I have experience working within the NHS as an Acute Dietitian and have assessed patients with different medical conditions. Furthermore, I have experience working within the public health sector, non-government organisations and charities.
I am a part of various projects focusing on the nutritional status of young and older adults and BME individuals.
