Lauren started her DPhil at the CPNP group at Nuffield Department of Population Health in October 2016. Her research will use food sales and composition data to index and monitor food companies in the UK, quantifying industry-led changes in food supply, which will lead to the analysis of food and health policy.
Before starting at NDPH, Lauren previously worked as a Nutrition Analyst at private research group Euromonitor. She has a BSc in Nutrition from King’s College London and an MSc in Food Policy at City University, where her work focused on the calorie reduction pledge of the Public Health Responsibility Deal.
