Accredited Practising Dietitian (APD) and Research Fellow

Clinical and research dietitian. Since 2019, I have worked with the Moving Pictures team to raise awareness of dementia in CaLD communities using multi-media. Research interests focus on successful ageing strategies with a holistic approach – translating evidence-based principles of healthy dietary patterns and cuisines for brain, gut and heart health alongside individual lifestyle and sociocultural practices that drive food choices as well as advocating for improved diet quality to support older people living at home or, in residential aged care. I also work at Swinburne University of Technology’s Centre for Human Psychopharmacology as the primary research dietitian on the MedWalk trial (Vic site) which examines the effects of a combined lifestyle intervention – Med Diet, daily exercise and social interaction on reducing cognitive decline and other dementia risk factors in older Australians.
