About I am a nutrition academic within the School of Exercise and Nutrition Sciences at Deakin University and also an Accredited Practising Dietitian. My teaching areas are in nutritional physiology and biochemistry, as well as the applied role of nutrition in disease prevention and management, particularly obesity, diabetes and cancer. I also serve as the Course Director for the Master of Dietetics program.
There are a wide range of research areas that keep me engaged including the role of specialised nutrition in the prevention of surgical complications; nutrition support in wound healing; and at a public health level, the changing nutritional intake of the Australian population.
