About Kate

I am a senior research fellow and registered dietitian with several years clinical and lecturing experience.The overall aim of my research is to improve the health outcomes of women and their families, by investigating the long-term outcomes of early nutritional exposures. I am particularly interested in preconception and pregnancy health as a mechanism for improving nutrition across generations. I am interested in applying quantitative methods, evidence synthesis and health technology to support improvements in nutritional care.
I am also co-programme lead for the MSc in Paediatric Dietetics in the School of Health Professionals.
