My current research activity includes assessing interventions to promote healthy and sustainable diets using agent-based modelling techniques. Also, modelling future global food security using FAO food balance sheet data. Recent work has made extensive use of Kantar Worldpanel consumer purchase data to estimate the effects of reductions in food waste on food and drink purchasing, diet quality and environmental impact. Kantar Worldpanel data will be used to assess whether Scotland's Minimum Unit Pricing for alcohol has unintended consequences for diet quality and health.
My earlier work was on energy balance, dietary assessment and the mis-reporting of dietary intakes, in which I am still involved.
