Neha Lalchandani has a background in Food Science and Nutrition and is currently in her third year of studying the Doctor of Philosophy (Public Health). She is working on a research project that focuses on assessing the current food environment in South Australian public schools. This program of work is based on considering associations between school policies and programs, food and beverage consumption patterns, and environmental impacts of schoolchildren's eating behaviours.

Neha is interested in the structural and environmental influences on children's dietary behaviours in school settings. She is also passionate about working with stakeholder organisations such as the Department of Education and environmental agencies like KESAB environmental solutions to improve school food environments, and ultimately children's and planetary health.
