Personal profile

Research interests

I have an extensive career promoting health and performance through good nutrition and exercise. My experience spans several areas including food service management, research, private practice and industry consulting. I have regularly consulted to elite sporting teams and state and national sporting bodies.

I have consistently worked in a university setting teaching food service dietetics, nutrition science, sports nutrition, nutrition and physical activity and communication. 

I am increasingly focussed on not ‘what’ people eat but ‘why’ people eat the way they do within the broader context of food systems and food citizenship. My personal passion for environmental sustainability has now become central to my professional career and research focus.

My research interests include environmental sustainability, food service management, food citizenship and food systems, nutrition education, garden-to-table/paddock-to-plate and applied/behavioural nutrition in service personnel and sports.
