BSc (Hons) Dietetics; MSc Nutrition; MSc Public Health.


I joined the University of Glamorgan in October 2008.

I have been working in Public Health since 2004. The role involved working at a strategic and local level with a range of partners with the objectives of implementing and evaluating a range of healthy eating/nutrition programmes as a response to local need.

I coordinated the implementation of the Welsh Assembly’s strategy “Appetite for Life” which aims to improve the nutritional standards of food and drink provided in schools throughout Wales.

I’ve been a committee member of the Alliance Board for the Nutrition and Physical Activity Network for Wales and a member of the Healthy Eating Food and Fitness Task and Finish Group until 2008.

I am currently a member of the newly established research centre PONT Community-to-Community Development.

My principal research interests focus on evaluating the impact of behavioural models and theories in relation to lifestyle changes.

Especially looking at the link between research and its impact on policy-making.

I am also interested in the evaluation of the impact of public health interventions especially in the assessment of health, nutrition and food security programmes in developing countries.
