My PhD research identifies and analyses ethical issues that arise and in relation to Public Health interventions to address obesity.

As part of of the Australian National Preventative Health Agency (ANPHA)-funded HealthyLaws research project, my research examined the ethical implications of the prevention of childhood obesity with the use of regulation and law.

I am currently looking at the discussion and consideration of weight-stigma within Public Health and academic discourse, with a view to proposing interventions and strategies to reduce weight stigma and related discrimination, bullying, and so on.
