Nutrition MSc/PG Dip
I have been at King's College for 10 years now. I started my life at King's as an MSc student in the Department of Nutrition & Dietetics, following which I was awarded a King's research studentship to undertake a PhD investigating the effects of triacylglycerol structure on postprandial lipaemia. On completing my PhD, I commenced a postdoctoral research post, also at King's, which involved running a community-based dietary trial on the effects of increased fruit and vegetable consumption on blood pressure and vascular function. I was then appointed to my current post; lecturer in Nutrition & Dietetics, which is a challenging but interesting and fulfilling job. Alongside my varied teaching roles, I have continued to develop my research in lipids and cardiovascular disease and have expanded this research to focus on the effects of lipids and postprandial lipaemia on endothelial function.
I have chosen to stay within my department throughout my career development, as it is a thriving research-led teaching environment and offers outstanding research facilities. The close collaborative links we hold with clinical divisions and industry also enable us to undertake a broad range of clinical and laboratory research and allows us to offer some unique project opportunities to graduate students.
