I joined Plymouth University in Jan 2016 and almost immediately linked up with PenCLAHRC. I am part of the PenCLARHC PhD Research Capacity in Dementia Care programme and working with one of the PhD fellows to explore nutritional care for those with dementia and their carers.
I have a long history working in the NHS in several London Teaching Hospitals, where I provided clinical care and led the Therapy Service Team for research and education. I also worked closely with researchers at Imperial College London and organised the MRes Human Nutrition course there.
At Plymouth University my role is to develop the research output and capacity within our Dietetic Team, who run a very successful undergraduate taught programme for dietetics. Our areas of research include: Dietetic Practice in Childhood and Adults, Public Health Nutrition, Nutrition and Ageing, Nutritional Management of Disease, Nutrition and Metabolism. My own research interests are nutrition and ageing, frailty, and sarcopenia, dietetic practice, hospital food delivery and malnutrition screening and assessment.
