Speaker Details.

I am in the final stages of my PhD with Prof Helen Roche at the Conway Institute, University College Dublin. This PhD was funded through the Food for Health Ireland (FHI) research centre ( I joined FHI in 2014 as a PhD researcher in the Glycaemic Management workpackage, having graduated with a BSc in Human Nutrition in 2013 from University College Dublin. My research focused primarily on the examination of the potential of novel milk protein derived bioactive hydrolysates to improve glycaemic control and promote metabolic health.
