Nick Jones

Research Interests

My PhD research is focused on the possible benefits of changing UK dietary guidance to match the USA's Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension eating plan (the DASH diet), comparing the effect on nutrient intake of following of a DASH diet with that of meeting current UK nutrition guidance, and modelling the affordability of purchasing a DASH diet compared to observed and ideal diets. 

More broadly I am interested in food security and access, health inequalities, and the politics of obesity.
