Media

I have experience of being interviewed on radio and TV and presenting e-seminars. I've also received media training and I'm keen to make nutrition and food information accessible and relevant to a wide range of audiences. 

 

I'm delighted to provide regular nutrition content for the OcadoLife Magazine and to have been part of the Food Spark team contributing to articles on food innovation. I regularly provide quotes for the press on a wide variety of nutrition topics and have contributed to many articles in popular magazines such as Delicious and Happiful

 

I'm quoted regularly in local and national press such as The Scotsman and The Herald and I have also been quoted in industry and health professional publications such as The Grocer, NutraIngredients and Independent Nurse. I've been consulted by the BBC for the Horizon programme ‘Should we eat meat?’ and have appeared on BBC2’s ‘The Food Detectives’ series. 

 

My aim, therefore, is to communicate evidence-based information in a clear and engaging way.

Listen above to part of BBC Radio Scotland's 'The Kitchen Cafe' program when I discuss brain food with Chef Neil Forbes (Cafe St Honore, Edinburgh) and students Maeve and Cameron. For a summary, see my blog post here.

Testimonials

I worked with Laura on a science production for BBC One and really enjoyed the experience.  She provided punctual, accurate and informative research notes and was always available on the phone to offer her expertise

in the lead up to filming.  On the day of filming she helped out as part of the production team and delivered the content well on camera.  I would be happy to work with Laura again on future food science productions. - Claire Tippett, BBC Scotland

We recently worked with Laura on an expert-led opinion piece for our client where Laura delivered a high standard of research demonstrating herself to be an expert in her field. Laura is knowledgeable and reliable, turning around work quickly and which surpassed both our and our client’s expectations.Weber Shandwick PR
