After graduation in 1987 I worked as a dietitian in the NHS before moving to Newcastle University as a Research Associate to work on the Northumberland cross sectional cohort studies. I was awarded PhD from Faculty of Medicine Newcastle University in 1993. From 1992-95 I worked in clinical practice in a number of community dietetic posts and in primary care in London. I returned to Newcastle University in 1995 to take up a post as Lecturer in the then newly created Human Nutrition Research Centre to develop a research programme in Public Health Nutrition. The Human Nutrition Research Centre is now an established University Research Centre directed by Prof John Mathers. As deputy director of the Human Nutrition Research Centre I lead a thriving and vibrant team in Public Health Nutrition Research. In 2009 I joined the Institute of Health & Society where I lead the Public Health Improvement research theme. I was awarded a personal chair in 2010, Fellowship of Faculty of Public Health in 2011 and an NIHR Professorship in 2012.
