I have experience of being interviewed on radio and TV and presenting e-seminars. I have also received media training.
I am keen to make nutrition and food information accessible and relevant to a wide range of audiences.
I am delighted to be 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 Men's Health, Runners World and OK! I am regularly quoted 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 have 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 is to communicate evidence-based information in a clear and engaging way.

I am co-founder and moderator of the @AfNutr monthly twitter chats.
