During my PhD I became pretty much obsessed by lipids and lipoproteins and their role in cardiovascular disease. I have recently completed a postdoctoral project investigating the molecular composition of LDL particles which was hugely exciting; however, I also have an interest in population-level data and how it can be used to determine risk and inform public health initiatives to prevent and treat disease.
Furthermore, I am in the process of examining data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES); findings of which I am aiming to present at a large European nutrition conference in 2019 and then publish. However, I would like to further this research and both expand my own personal understanding of the area and contribute towards the prevention of cardiovascular disease. These are the driving forces behind my role in the study and I absolutely cannot wait to get started!
