Career Summary

I joined UEA as Lecturer in Vascular Physiology in 2016. My research focuses on cardiovascular health and how improvements in vascular function in the brain may be associated with cognitive decline and dementia. I am particularly interested in how bioactive food components, particularly polyphenols, may be used to explore these relationships. Prior to joining UEA, I completed my postdoctoral research and PhD studies in Australia.

I completed my university studies in Melbourne, before moving to Adelaide for my first postdoctoral position at the University of South Australia in the Nutritional Physiology Research Centre. In 2011, I moved to a government position in the South Australian Department for Health and Ageing in Public Health Promotion, particularly nutrition and physical activity promotion. In 2014, I returned to an academic position in the School of Nursing and Midwifery at Flinders University where I was involved in large epidemiological studies investigating cardiotoxicity after chemotherapy. I have served on several committees and boards including the South Australian branch of the Nutrition Society of Australia (2012), I was president of the South Australian branch of the Public Health Association of Australia (2015-2016), and Deputy Chair of the Board of Walking SA (2013-15).
