Personal profile

Research interests

I am a specialist dietitian and clinical researcher having worked in the field of obesity for 12 years. I currently hold a National Institute of Health Research (NIHR) funded Clinical Lectureship in the Department of Population Health Sciences, University of Bristol and an honorary appointment as an obesity and bariatric surgery specialist dietitian at Southmead Hospital. My PhD research (NIHR Doctoral Research Fellowship) focused on the patient's perspective of bariatric surgery, including developing a core outcome set for bariatric surgery, and investigating ways to improve follow-up care. My current research is investigating barriers to accessing specialist care for people living with obesity which includes both an epidemiological study and a qualitative study. I am also collaborating on international projects to standardise outcomes for bariatric surgery, and am involved in other trial methodology projects including developing a typology for anaesthesia trials. I am passionate about cross-disciplinary collaboration and am in the process of setting up a local Healthy Weight Health Integration team together with Dr James Nobles to bring together academics, health professionals, policy makers and people living with obesity to work in new ways to address the prevention and treatment of obesity.
