Viviana is a Research Associate in the Human Nutrition Research Centre of Newcastle University's Institute of Health and Society. She has worked in projects identifying biomarkers of dairy intake using data on nutrition and eating habits in Europe. She has also worked in projects evaluating the performance of urgent health care service delivery in England and the cost of rare liver disease.
She obtained her PhD from Reading University. Her research topic was on factors influencing children's and adolescents fruit and vegetable consumption. Previously she completed an MSc in Food Economics and Marketing also from Reading University. Her undergraduate degree was in Economics.
Her main areas of interests lie in the application of economic and psychological models to food behaviours, and include:
-young people's food choices and health outcomes
-life transitions and health/consumption behaviours
-public policy interventions on consumption and health behaviours.
She is also interested in dietary measurement methods and the use of large health datasets.
