My primary research interests relate to the role of nutrition in optimising health and wellbeing throughout the life course, with a focus on the conduct of human intervention studies. I have a particular interest in studying the effects of flavonoids on markers of vascular health, especially in populations at elevated risk of heart disease. Previous research experience has included assessing the impact of community based dietary interventions in a broad range of settings and I retain an interest in the role of exercise and activity in disease prevention and recuperation.
