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.
My current research focuses on the influence of macronutrient (specifically protein) and different forms of meals on appetite and dietary intake in older adults living in the United Kingdom (U.K).
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.
I have experience working within the NHS as an Acute Dietitian and have assessed patients with different medical conditions. I have provided evidence-based dietary advice and dietary treatment plans to help them manage their condition(s) and meet their nutritional requirements. 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.
I have written health, nutrition and dietetics related articles for various online and print publications such as The Conversation, The Independent, Huff Post and more.
I enjoy debunking myths surrounding nutrition, providing evidence-based nutritional information and translate research related to food and health into practical guidance.
