Personal profile

Research interests

My research interests are related to human Nutriton and physiology  with a focus on nutritional education for healthcare professionals and nutritional practice to reduce the triple burden of malnutrition in primary and secondary care.  Development of  evidence based practice for planned nutritional care and evaluation of interventions. Actively working with NNEdPro https://www.nnedpro.org.uk/, and collaborating with Nutritank and Culinary Medicine UK. Other research has included the use of PARO in the care and support of people with dementia, infection prevention & control when introducing novel devices into clinical practice,  the support and inclusion of people with disabilities in the workplace and in professional education.

Supervisory Interests

My supervisory interests include professional education and pedagogy including inclusive design, disability and inclusionary practices, marginalised and disadvantaged groups, nutrition education and health care professional practice, nutritional interventions to address triple burden of malnutrition in primary and secondary care, food poverty and food sustainability.

Approach to teaching

In teaching I adopt and inclusionary, collaborative approach that utilises traditional teaching with the use of PBL, scenarios, creativity and  technology in a blended approach. Keen to co-create materials within professional education that enables the service user voice and experience,  through narratives and engagement to inform and engage with students. In particular in the support of students from non-traditional backgrounds who are disadvantaged by the design of courses through a white lens, impairment or disability.
