My academic training is multidisciplinary, and I have degrees in nutrition, public health and medical statistics, and a PhD in epidemiology. I am appointed as a Honorary Professor in Epidemiology and Public Health at UCL. I was working in UCL since 2001, but my current primary base is in Adelaide, Australia. My current roles include Professor in Nutritional and Genetic Epidemiology, University of South Australia, and Principal Research Fellow at the South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute. I am also an Adjunct Professor in Epidemiology, University of Tampere, Finland.

Research Summary

Much of my work is interdisciplinary, and I use tools of genetic epidemiology to evaluate how by making changes in nutritional status or dietary intake we can improve health. I run several large projects, which aim to evaluate short- and long-term health effects of vitamin D. I also work actively in the field of inter-generational and life-course epidemiology, where increasingly the focus is in establishing how common genetic variations can affect dietary or other lifestyle influences on health.
