My research is anchored in the Health Research Board, Centre for Diet and Health Research, UCC http://www.ucc.ie/en/hrbc/). My research interests are nutritional epidemiology and public health nutrition. More specifically, the nutritional and environmental determinants of obesity and physical inactivity as risk factors for CVD.  I am a Lecturer in the Department of Epidemiology & Public Health, UCC, and co-ordinator of the Health Promotion Pathway on the Masters in Public Health (MPH).   Having worked as a researcher for the past 17 years, I have been involved in some of the largest epidemiological studies in Ireland. I was the UCC project researcher on the National Health and Lifestyle Survey (SLÁN 2007), the 3rd of the Irish National Health and Lifestyle Surveys and the largest conducted to date. I coordinated the nutritional component of SLÁN 2007 and jointly co-ordinated the physical examination. I was lead author on the SLÁN nutrition report and co-author of the main survey report. Prior to my lectureship appointment I was a senior researcher on the 10 year follow-up of the Cork and Kerry Diabetes and Heart Disease Study and the Mitchelstown Cohort Study.

 

The over-arching focus of my research to date is exploration of lifestyle patterns with a specific focus on dietary patterns, for determining low-risk CVD status.  I have published on the determinants of healthy diet and the impact of protective lifestyle behaviours on physical and mental health. My PhD thesis (conferred October 2012) was titled "Diet, lifestyle and modifiable environmental risk factors for cardiovascular disease: patterns and clusters in cross sectional analysis".   The over-arching focus of my PhD was to investigate the association between dietary patterns and clustering of dietary patterns with other lifestyle behaviours and major health outcomes.  

I am the PI and the UCC lead investigator for the EU Joint Programme Initiative-Determinants of Diet and Physical Activity (DEDIPAC) Knowledge Hub (€316,000 awarded by HRB). Another project of which I am a PI is the Cork Children’s Lifestyle Study (CCLaS), which has estimated the current prevalence of childhood obesity in Ireland and will identify the energy gap by using dietary intakes of the children and objectively measured physical activity data. It is the first study of its kind in Ireland to estimate dietary salt intake and measure blood pressure in 9-yr old Irish children.
