Research interests

Margaret's research interests include all aspects of dietetics from food and nutritional science through prevention of lifestyle associated chronic disease through evidence-based dietetic management of chronic disease to nutritional assessment and intervention in acute hospital care. She is interested in development of qualitative and quantitative tools and methods used for dietetic practice and research and innovative delivery methods for health promotion and diet counselling.

Her most recent research work is in public health addressing the rising rates of obesity among young adults and it sequelae for chronic disease rates and economic impact and health promotion to limit further increases. She has experience in secondary statistical analyses of National Health Survey data sets and is interested in measurement of energy balances and relative contributions of different physical activities at a population level as well as nutrient intakes.
