Brittany is a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Caring Futures Institute, in the College of Nursing and Health Sciences. She is currently managing the deconstructing interventions component of the TOPCHILD Collaboration—a new project that is bringing together researchers from around the world to transform early childhood obesity prevention, by unpacking past interventions using novel methods to understand how they work, and for whom.

Her research interests include improving children’s diet quality by reducing unhealthy food intake, applying behaviour change theory and creating supportive environments where we live, work and play. Her PhD was focussed on identifying intervention content to support parents to reduce provision of unhealthy foods to their young children during the transition to pre-school and school. Brittany is an Accredited Practising Dietitian with a background in public health nutrition and experience in working with Aboriginal communities and the child care sector to make healthy food choices.
