The focus of my research – supervised by Professor Belinda Lennox and Dr Amedeo Minichino – explores the relationship between diet, gut microbiota and mental health, specifically in the area of amotivation and anhedonia. This is mainly in the realm of analysing big data to explore how gut microbes mediate these disabling symptoms. My research will hopefully inform translation to clinical trials and dietary recommendations.


I am involved in science communication, and have written three non-fiction books with Penguin.
