Professor Barbara Stewart-Knox
Based in the Division of Psychology at the University of Bradford, research interests are focused upon understanding food related behaviour and span consumer food choice (including sensory factors); attitudes toward infant feeding; and, nutrient/food mediated psychological functions.
Research activities have included participation in several funded projects both within the UK and Europe the results of which have been widely published. Recent work has focused on the EU funded Food4Me integrated project which employed a triangulated design to understand public perceptions and attitudes toward personalised nutrition as well response, both psychological and physiological, to a personalised nutrition internet–based intervention in various European populations. Barbara’s research is of relevance not only to dietary health promoters but also the food industry.
