Research Focus

My research focus is prevention, reversal, and self-management support in diabetes. I am currently studying the reversal of type 2 diabetes through low energy diet and supervised exercise, the impact of recurrent gestational diabetes on cardiac disease in mothers, fathers, and offspring, the uptake and acceptability of web resources, ePlatform-based step and weight monitoring, and health coaching on health behaviour change in gestational diabetes.
