Health and Social Care Institute
Louisa has a BSc (Hons) in Molecular and Cellular Biology from the University of Bath, and a PhD in clinical nutrition from Newcastle University. Whilst completing her PhD Louisa developed a keen interest in obesity and its impact on public health. Louisa undertook her first postdoctoral position working in obesity research at Teesside University in 2004 before taking a post as obesity lead for the North East Public Health Observatory, based at Durham University in 2007. In 2007 Louisa also helped to establish the National Obesity Observatory (now Public Health England (PHE) obesity Knowledge and Intelligence), and has since spent two days a week as one of their specialist advisors. Louisa returned to Teesside University as a Reader in Public Health and Obesity in 2012, and continues to work closely with policy and practice partners to develop her translational public health research programme.
Louisa is an associate member of Fuse, editorial board member for the International Journal of Behavioural Nutrition and Physical Activity and was a member of the NICE PH27 expert review group.
Louisa's research interests focus on the management of obesity, public health policy, service evaluation, systematic reviewing and the development of novel tools to support the public health agenda.
