I am interested in the link between nutrition and successful cognitive ageing. My research focuses on the Mediterranean diet, and its potential to improve cardiovascular health, protect cognitive function and reduce risk of dementia. To assess changes in cardiometabolic and cognitive function following adherence to a Mediterranean diet I will be conducting three randomised clinical dietary intervention trials at the Sansom Institute for Health Research, collaborating with CAIN and the UniSA Alliance for Research in Exercise, Nutrition and Activity (ARENA). Supervisors: Dr Karen Murphy and Dr Hannah Keage.
