Personal profile

Research interests

Thesis title: Maintaining weight loss: a look at habits.

My interest in research started in my Masters degree when I had to complete a 6 month qualitative research study.

After working as a clinical dietitian for a number of years, I started to question why we did things the way we did and wonder if there was a better way. This led me to commence my PhD at the Center for Research in Evidence Based Practice in 2014, with my primary interest in habit-based interventions as a strategy for weight loss and weight loss maintenance. I’ve now published a narrative review on the topic and have successfully completed a randomised controlled trial, qualitative study and systematic review.  

I am also completing a Cochrane systematic review on Exercise for overweight and obesity and enjoy other work as a research assistant at Bond University.

 Primary research interests: habit-change, behaviour change, weight loss maintenance, randomised controlled trials, systematic reviews.

Fingerprint Fingerprint is based on mining the text of the person's scientific documents to create an index of weighted terms, which defines the key subjects of each individual researcher.
